Land Degradation and Restoration: the State-of-the-Art ... and open session within the TERRAenVISION congress. Barcelona 2018

Land Degradation faces complex challenges at the beginning of the XXI century, with environmental, social, economic and political dimensions. Although the topic was originally focused on the arid, semiarid, and dry sub-humid regions, land degradation is increasingly seen as a worldwide threat. This session provides a platform for papers that discuss biophysical (soil erosion, soil degradation, climate change, flora and fauna, water resources, ecosystem services…), social (gender, community research approaches, farmers perceptions, land use decision making…), economic (land management, poverty, investments in sustainable land management…) and political aspects (new and old policies, land rights, governance…) at different temporal and spatial scales.  A selection of papers from this session will be published in Science of the Total Environment prior a peer review process.

Within the TERRAenVISION a scientific meeting and a session on Land Degradation and Restoration: the State-of-the-Art is organized. You are very welcome to join and to share information and discuss how to face Desertification and achieve restoration. You can find more information here for the congress program  and the session on Land degradation and restoration. You can register here  and submit your abstracts (free of charge)
