Objectifs
The International Arid Lands Consortium (IALC) works to achieve research and development, educational and training initiatives, demonstration projects, workshops, and other technology transfer activities applied to the development, management, restoration, and reclamation of arid and semiarid lands in North America, the Middle East, and elsewhere in the world. All activities are supported by the 9 IALC member institutions through their ongoing applied research and demonstration projects aimed at sustaining arid and semiarid land ecological systems, implicitly including humankind.

Descriptif
During FY2005 the IALC will fund projects based following an extensive scientific review, ranking, and selection process that fall under the themes of the IALC mission and goals. A general list of the IALC themes includes : 1) land use & reclamation ; 2) soil & water resources development & conservation ; 3) ecosystem processes supporting & enhancing the management & restoration of ecological systems ; 4) inventory and measurement techniques ; and 5) the human and institutional dimensions of themes #1 - #4. The IALC established a Research and Demonstration Advisory Committee (RADAC) made up of one scientist from each IALC member institutions. The RADAC reviewed all proposals based on guidelines listed in the FY2005 request for proposals. The final projects were approved by the IALC Board at their March 2005 meeting. Each project will be reviewed by the IALC RADAC on a semi-annual basis. One or more publications are expected from each funded project upon completion of the study.
