Blooming Drylands: A Practical Approach for Context-Dependent Economic, Social and Environmentally Sustainable Transformations

This policy brief seeks to inform decision-makers of nine transformational actions to sustain dryland production systems under the impact of climate change. It highlights the relevance of the local context for interventions and the importance of traditional and tested adaptive agrosilvopastoral strategies for building resilience. In addition, it emphasizes the potential for scaling up and using complementary technologies over wider areas, as well as the roles of both women and men in maintaining, creating and restoring dryland sustainable landscapes.
