DESIRE and zero growth Print

As a contribution to the UNCCP COP10 (Changwon, October 2011) side event "Knowledge brokering models for UNCCD: approaches towards bridging policy science and practice" DESIRE prepared this briefing document on "DESIRE and zero growth".

 

We suggest that the UNCCD call to reduce land degradation rapidly to a state of zero growth is not dependent on advances in science and technology, but rather on the uptake of science by decision makers; those with power and finance. There are many issues such as non-enforcement of legislation or land tenure problems that often get in the way of the achievement of sustainable land management. However, DESIRE can help by identifying such issues and providing the methodology to select appropriate technologies.
