The Economics of Desertification, Land Degradation, and Drought: Toward an Integrated Global Assessment

This report conceptualizes the economic valuation of Desertification, Land degradation and Drought (DLDD) in terms of its association with the change in productivity and with changes in the provision of ecosystem services and the human benefits derived from them. Ecosystem services comprise provisioning (agricultural output, fuel wood, fresh water, and so on), supporting (such as soil formation, nutrient cycling), regulating (such as water and climate regulation), and cultural services.
