What We Do
Biodiversity conservation: Arid and semi arid lands are rich in biodiversity. That is plants and animal species. The dry lands world wide host authorised protected areas and are inhabited by pastoral and indigenous communities. Therefore, conserving dryland biodiversity is critical for pastoral resource sustainability.
Governance and policy: The resource governance components focus on capacity development of rural communities to sustainably
manage and use natural resources; and secure resource rights for food security and climate change adaptation.
Resilience and livelihoods: Drylands support low agricultural production due to the variable climate conditions. The focus will be on sustainable livelihoods and nutrition through an innovative
and resilient agricultural and livestock management practices for arid landscapes development.
