Combating desertification in mediterranean europe : linking science with stakeholders

Objective

DESERTLINKS will support stakeholders at the local, sub-national and national level in combating desertification. It will bring the results of past research on the physical and socio-economic aspects of desertification to bear on practical ways to combat it at various geographical scales from the local to the European.DESERTLINKS will provide indicators to monitor desertification as well as syntheses of the understanding of the physical and socio-economic processes that cause it. It will establish the ways in which major current Mediterranean-wideband uses are affecting desertification. It will show how to mitigate its effects by taking different land management decisions at both the public policy and individual level and by adopting practical land management techniques.
