Effects of drought and land degradation on vegetation losses
This study examines areas in Africa, South America and the Arab region subject to different levels of both land degradation (LD) and agricultural drought hazard (ADH). The authors estimate crop losses related to the impacts of drought and land degradation combined.
The conclusions warn that drought and land degradation could impact the aspirations for sustainable forest management, as deforestation continues at alarming rates in most of the countries in the rainforest basins.
