Saffron Flowers and Sunken Gardens: Inspiring Initiatives Reversing Dryland Degradation and Strengthening Livelihoods

Local initiatives often fall outside the scope and sight of policy makers, whereas so many inspiring initiatives to counter degradation and desertification are going on everywhere in the world. This publication aims to show how grassroots initiatives in many regions have positively transformed the environment and living conditions with people finding ways to earn a living that does not cause degradation. Drynet partners around the world have been involved in, and documenting, all sorts of inspiring initiatives and this publication highlights just a small selection of them. These examples show that positive change is possible and they will hopefully inspire the many people working in or for drylands. We hope you will be inspired too!
