Is combating desertification an environmental global public good? elements of an answer...
Series: Les dossiers thématiques du CSFD, issue 1
Today, it appears necessary to take stock of the desertification process: What is its extent? What consequences does it entail? How vulnerable are the societies affected? Does desertification worsening increase poverty and weaken available natural resources? This first CSFD thematic report intends to investigate such topics in order to give new impulse to the combat against desertification. This challenge would then no longer be a mere collection of several technical actions led at the local scale to limit sand invasion and erosion, but would take a wider dimension, both local and global, integrating developmental and environmental issues.
