International Symposium on Drylands Ecology and Human Security ISDEHS 2006
ISDEHS 2006 is meant to be the first of a series of symposia intended to create an ongoing dialogue between researchers and policy makers from the Arab world with the global scientific community as well as to reposition the ongoing desertification debate within the context of human security. This year’s discussions will address the theme "Regional Perspectives, Policy Responses and Sustainable Development in the Arab Region - Challenges and Opportunities" and will thus mainly focus on the progressive land degradation and its social consequences in the Middle East and North Africa. (MENA) However best practice examples and research from other semi-arid and arid regions are certainly welcome!
