Can Desert Encroachment Be Stopped? A Study with Emphasis on Africa - Ecological Bulletins No. 24

United Nations Environment Programme (1976)

This volume in the series Ecological Bulletins deals with the ecological and social problems of desert encroachment. It puts man and his activities into an ecological con- text and outlines the causes of desert encroachment and remedies which can be used. The report has been prepared in close cooperation between UNEP and SIES as a background document for the 1977 UN Conference on Desertization. It is also a furth-er step in the efforts of the Editorial Board of the Ecological Bulletins to publish re-ports which are relevant to the present discussions on important environmental issues.
