Présentation
The conference aims at developing new scientific insights and recommendations to policy makers with regard to the assessment of vulnerability of socio-ecosystems to climate change and current and future capacities to adapt. The conference thus is expected to contribute to the combat against desertification and land degradation and to address impacts of drought, by delivering the following outcomes : x Better anticipation and prevention of the impact of climate change on land degradation and desertification, through capacity building ; x Identification and promotion of sustainable and adaptive methods of using ecosystems to reduce poverty and environmental degradation, while achieving sustainable development ; x Identification of pathways towards land degradation neutrality : by way of reducing degradation processes and scaling up restoration activities, the objective is to maintain and improve the quantity and quality of productive land. The conference called for contributions from scientists and experts in the three following areas : 1. Diagnosis of constraints : How to best characterize and understand the vulnerability and adaptive capacities of ecosystems (in particular agro-ecosystems) and populations in affected regions, including regions newly susceptible to the consequences of climate change ? 2. Responses : How to build efficiently on available knowledge, success stories and lessons learnt to promote implementation of better adapted, knowledge-based practices and technologies ? 3. Monitoring and assessment : What are the new monitoring and assessment methods available to evaluate the effectiveness of these practices and technologies that provide improved insights on whether or how their implementation should be scaled up ? This document gathers the abstracts of the 197 contributions presented at the conference in these three sessions. These abstracts and related posters presentations are also displayed online on the conference website : http://3sc.unccd.int
