Database of evaluated strategies from all study sites Print

Stakeholder Workshop 1 identified a number of existing or potential strategies to combat desertification and land degradation in the each of the study sites. In the months following the workshop these strategies (technologies or approaches) were documented and evaluated in a structured and standardised way and their descriptions were entered in the WOCAT Technologies and Approaches databases in order to share the information with other DESIRE sites as well as globally.

 

For details of all Technologies and Approaches documented in the WOCAT Database (from the DESIRE study sites and from other sites worldwide), see

 

A total of 42 sustainable land management technologies and 20 sustainable land management approaches have been evaluated and documented by the DESIRE study sites. Click on the Name of technology or Name of approach to go directly to those descriptions in the database.
