New perspectives on climate resilient drylands development: refining the arguments

IIED, in partnership with University of Peking in China, the Revitalizing Rainfed Agriculture Network and Rainfed Livestock Network in India, and the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands Secretariat of the Ministry of State for Development of Northern Kenya and other Arid lands in Kenya, is implementing a 1-year project entitled New perspectives on climate resilient drylands development. Funded by the Ford Foundation, the project aims to formulate a more progressive narrative of the drylands, to those currently articulated by many global and public institutions, based on sound scientific evidence and traditional local knowledge and experience.
