Land Degradation Assessment in Drylands (LADA)


Pays : Global

Focal Area : Land Degradation

Approuvé le : 2004-11-19

Organisme d’exécution : Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)

GEF Agency  : United Nations Environment Programme


The principal objectives of LADA project are two-fold. First, to develop and implement strategies, tools and methods to assess and quantify the nature, extent and severity of land degradation and the overall ecosystem resilience of dryland ecosystems at a range of spatial and temporal scales. The assessment will integrate biophysical factors and socio-economic driving forces. Second, the project will build national, regional and global assessment capacities to enable the design and planning of interventions to mitigate land degradation and establish sustainable land use and management practices. These objectives are expected to overcome current policy and institutional barriers to sustainable land use in dryland zones and establish incentives to promote the accrual of global biodiversity benefits at national and local levels
