An argument that the perception of arid lands as wastelands is politically motivated and that these landscapes are variable, biodiverse ecosystems, whose inhabitants must be empowered.

Deserts are commonly Arid-lands research institutions book as barren, defiled, worthless places, wastelands in need of development. This understanding has fueled extensive anti-desertification efforts—a multimillion-dollar global campaign. Arid Land Research and Management.

The Graduate Interdisciplinary Program in Arid Lands Resource Sciences (ALRS) offers a program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree with a major in ALRS.

This interdisciplinary program provides an academic environment in which to examine the ecological, economic, and social factors which influence the sustainable use of arid and semi-arid. Traditional Arid Lands Agriculture is the first of its kind.

Each chapter considers four questions: what we don’t know about specific aspects of traditional agriculture, why we need to know more, how we can know more, and what research questions can be pursued to know more. What is known is presented to provide context for what is unknown.

The International Arid Lands Consortium (IALC) is a partnership of organizations dedicated to research, edu-cation, and training relative to development, manage-ment, restoration, and reclamation of arid and semi-arid lands throughout the world.

federal research efforts tend to focus on issues that may be of higher risk and require longer study. One example is the WCRL study of the life cycle of the pink bollworm, a huge and pervasive pest of cotton, to find more effective methods of control.

This book provides an overview of arid and semi-arid lands conditions, their general characteristics, methods of management, conservation, exploitation, and reclamation.

Furthermore, the book demonstrates how there are continuities from colonial policies to UN institutions today. For instance, the UN absorbed European un-derstandings of arid lands and desertification, and UN agencies largely replaced colonial institutions as the main actors in supporting and reproducing the desert-ification narrative.

The research findings have the potential to influence future policy on whether investment should be directly targeted at semi-arid lands, or whether wider national institutional and capacity considerations should be given more attention as a means of mitigating vulnerability.
