Landscape Partnership Asia is kicking off the first webinar in its series on how stakeholders are addressing dryland degradation across Asia. Climate change and human activities are exacerbating desertification, and this trend is spreading around the world. Asia is home to the largest area of dryland ecosystems, increasing the region and its population’s vulnerability to land degradation.
This series is part of the Asian Drylands Knowledge Hub, bringing together diverse individuals and groups to exchange lessons learned from successful restoration models.
Landscape Partnership Asia is the largest initiative aiming to restore Asian drylands, founded by Asian Forest Cooperation Organization (AFoCO), Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and World Agroforestry (ICRAF), and the Global EverGreening Alliance (Alliance).
