    This volume contains the presentations made at the Eighth International Conference on Dryland
    Development. It is hoped that it will serve as a repository of information on the problems and prospects of
    sustainable management of dry areas and preventing desertification, and will thus be of interest to those
    involved in research, extension, development and policy formulation for the benefit of the people of the dry areas. It is our belief it would serve as an important contribution to the objectives of the IYDD.

Land is valued differently if it is the base of one’s power or wealth than if one’s community is in need of its integrity and depends on the ecosystem services (ESS) that it provides. To some extent, this may explain the great challenge UNCCD has experienced in mustering international support for its mandate.

    With current rates of land degradation reaching

    health and resilience of the land that humans
    depend on. As much as 500 million out of
    two billion ha of degraded land, mainly in
    developing countries, have restoration potential,

    For a long time the issue of land and related problems has been debated mostly by academicians, politicians and professionals. Although the problem has remained more or less one of the most talked of in Kenya, the public has very often been left out of the debate. Again mostly the debate has been dominated more by complaining about either the lack of policy or the bad land policies and laws and the failure by successive governments to correct those problems.
