    Although several institutional and management approaches that address the degradation of the rangelands have been tested in the dry areas of Central and West Asia and North Africa (CWANA), impact has been limited. Nonetheless, the development of National Action Plans to combat desertification highlights the interest of governments to tackle this issue. Payment for Environmental Services (PES) may be a viable policy option, though, to date, most PES programs have focused on the management of different resources (forests, watersheds).

    Lesotho

    Lesotho is one of the poorest and most
    unequal countries in the world. It is a small, mostly
    mountainous, and largely rural country of about 2 million
    people, completely surrounded by South Africa. The
    persistence of poverty and rising inequality are striking

    Improving the long-term sustainability and resilience of smallholder agriculture in Africa is highly dependent on conserving or improving the quality of the natural resource. Conservation agriculture is conceived around more integrated and effective management strategies for provisioning both food and other ecosystem services. If unattended to, land degradation would reduce agricultural productivity and increase pressure on marginal environments in the Tigray highlands of Ethiopia, adversely affecting food security and livelihoods of smallholder farmers.

    Botswana

    Botswana has been one of the worlds
    fastest growing economies over the past 50 years, allowing
