Desertification Mitigation and Remediation of Land – DESIRE

Funded by European Union’s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), the DESIRE project seeks to establish promising alternative land use and management conservation strategies based on a close participation of scientists with stakeholder groups in the degradation and desertification hotspots around the world. This integrative participatory approach ensures both the acceptability and feasibility of conservation techniques, and a sound scientific basis for the effectiveness at various scales.
