Description:

Connecting Community Action and Science to Combat Desertification: Evaluation of a Process.

Summary / Notes:

Combating desertification requires the involvement of many people ranging from communities who experience the effects on a daily basis and scientists attempting to understand the biophysical and socio-economic causes and consequences of desertification, to developers and policy makers on all levels. In many instances, however, the understanding, approaches and actions of these different groups contradict rather than support one another. Over the period 2000 to 2002, a conference process undertaken in southern Africa brought together communities, scientists, and development workers to test the concept that they could connect and work together to combat desertification, given an appropriate framework. Keywords: alternative livelihoods, capacity building, combating desertification, community inter-action, conference process, information exchange, traditional knowledge, training.
