Desertification is a detrimental process that brings about a gradual and an unnoticed reduction in the productive capacity of land over a period of years. The end point of the process would ·be the formation of a complete wasteland incapable of producing anything useful. Desertification is a problem of global magnitude with major environmental and socio-economic consequences. It is a complex issue, arises not from a single, identifiable cause, but from complex interactions among physical, biological, political, social, cultural and economic factors. The countries most seriously affected by desertification usually are developing countries which do not have the adequate means of coping with a problem of such magnitude. Administrative approach will be used to study the efforts made to combat desertification. It will analyse the structure and functioning of administrative institutions and organisations at national and international levels, which are involved .... 10 formulating and implementing desertification-related programmes. The administrative system of a nation plays a great role in combating desertification by formulating and implementing desertification-related programmes within the framework of Global Environmental Governance (GEG). The purpose of using . administrative approach is to mainly focus on the administrative and legislative issues involved in addressing desertification rather than scientific and technical aspects. Due to globalisation the conditions for governance changed. The traditional models of administration failed to address many global problems. In the emerging web of transnational links, old forms of collective decision-making are weakened and new forms become possible. Governance, broader than government is a new process of governing or the new method by which society is governed. It consists of formal institutions and informal arrangements. As a comprehensive and inclusive concept, governance is an a11- encompassing, highly participatory, dynamic and engaging process. It seeks solutions to problems through dialogue and communicative action. Today the policy formulation and implementation processes are made up of these diverse, overlapping and integrated networks which comprise varying relational geometries of States, markets and associational sectors. These actors bring their own specific sets of powers, roles and responsibilities as determined by values, skills and organisational resources into the network arena.
