The scientific and technical support to the elaboration of the Regional Action Programme (RAP) of the Annex IV Countries (UNCCD Regional Implementation Annex for the Northern Mediterranean) is the aim of the present proposal. The scientific and technical knowledge acquired up to now by EC Research programmes as well as by National and International researches and actions on desertification, land degradation, sustainable development will be analysed together with representative stakeholders in five ad hoc Workshops. This will allow the definition of the current state of the art on selected relevant topics (sustainable water and soil management, land vulnerability to desertification, socio-economic aspects and mitigation strategies), the identification of existing scientific, political and institutional gaps and the definition of strategies for RAP elaboration and implementation. A large number of stakeholders at each level will be involved.
