Policies for land use to combat desertification (MEDACTION 4)

Objective

MEDACTION 4 is one of a cluster of four projects forming a programme of integrated, multidisciplinary research, involving the principal stakeholders and concentrating on finding solutions to the strategic problem of desertification. Sustainable land use Policies and degradation management strategies will be developed which will address specific problems of desertification and sustainable development at various scales. The project is divided into four modules which will address land management concerns, scenario-generation and policy formulation at various scales (local and Mediterranean). At the local scale four target areas will be investigated: Alentejo (Portugal), Guadalentin (Spain), Agri (Italy) and Lesvos (Greece).
