Global level

The DESIRE project is part of the European Union's on-going commitment to provide science and technology support to the UNCCD. To this end we have written a number of briefing and other documents as contributions to the debates at the Conferences of Parties and Committees for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention.

Food security in drylands Food security in drylands

hot!

 

Although most people can agree on the importance of food security, there are many, often widely divergent, ideas on the kind of political and technological interventions that are needed to achieve global food security. Research findings from different agroecological zones warn us about the danger of making generalisations about the sorts of challenges (or “scenarios”) we are likely to face in future; rather, the latest research emphasises the need to adapt interventions to local ecological, social and political circumstances.
