Desertification (video)

Contrary to popular perception, desertification is not the loss of land to deserts or through sand-dune movement. It refers to land degradation due to climatic variations and human activities. This video shows the kinds of innovative agricultural methods supported and promoted by the UNCCD to prevent further degradation and maintain fertile soil - one of the most precious resources on Earth. The effects on biodiversity loss and eventually on food security and hunger for the global community are highlighted.
