Description

Highlighting successful farmer-led initiatives, scientists demonstrate the importance of the ‘Research in Development’ approach for the global land restoration effort.  If degraded lands have to be saved embedding research within farmer-focused development initiatives is essential, echoed scientists on the sidelines of the 14th Conference of Parties to the UN Convention to Combat Desertification here on Monday. They cited successful land restoration initiatives in Africa and India to make the point.
