Dryland opportunities : a new paradigm for people, ecosystems and development

Complete Title: 
Dryland opportunities : a new paradigm for people, ecosystems and development
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Drylands cover 41 percent of the earth’s terrestrial surface. The urgency of and international response to climate change have given a new place to drylands in terms both of their vulnerability to predicted climate change impacts and their potential contribution to climate change mitigation. This book aims to apply the new scientific insights on complex dryland systems to practical options for development. A new dryland paradigm is built on the resources and capacities of dryland peoples, on new and emergent economic opportunities, on inward investment, and on the best support that dryland science can offer.
