This publication provides practical and evidence-based guidance on how to improve women’s access to land as an essential element to achieve social and economic development and enjoyment of human rights, peace and stability in the specific context of the Muslim world.
Due to recurring droughts and severe overgrazing, Jordan’s dry rangelands are exceptionally prone to degradation. Establishing both restoration and sustainable rangeland management practices are crucial to reverse the negative impacts on the ecosystem.
This report summarizes the work done during 2017 to elaborate a typology of the SWC and WH structures implemented in the Badia rangelands, based on both literature and remote sensing evidence, as part of Activity A6.
The aim of the paper is to examine the variability of eastern Mediterranean landscapes using a common mapping framework relying on Landscape Character Mapping (LCM). LCM was adapted to the region’s specificities placing emphasis on the area’s coastal nature, landform variation, land use, in particular pastoral tradition, and settlement patterns, an important output of this study.
This report summarizes the work done during 2017 to review the relevant policies, programs, and interventions implemented during the recent decades in Badia, as part of Activity A6.
This research activity titled “ACTIVITY A6: DEVELOP METHODS FOR INTEGRATED ASSESSMENT OF RESTORATION INTERVENTIONS (IMPACT ON SOIL AND ECOSYSTEM FUNCTIONS) AT BADIA SCALE AND AT EXPERIMENTAL SITE SCALE” was funded as part of the Project titled “Sustainability and Operationalization of Established Regional Agricultural Research Centers in Five Arab Countries” (sub-project “Restoration of Badia e
Jordan's rangelands, the so called Badia, home of the Bedouins, are threatened through a combination of over-exploitation of the ecosystem services and a changing climate towards drier seasons and highly erratic rainfalls.
