3rd international conference on Drylands, Deserts and Desertification PDF Print E-mail
Written by Erik van den Elsen   
ImageThe 3rd international conference on Drylands, Deserts and Desertification will be held on November 8-11, 2010 at Sede Boqer campus of Ben Gurion University in Israel.

The conference is co-sponsored by UNESCO and will be attended by a diverse international audience working in fields involving deserts and desertification.  
The conference is not a conventional academic gathering. It is interdisciplinary by design and is open to scientists, government and NGO leaders, international policy and aid workers, as well as farmers, foresters, pastoralists and of course the general, concerned public. The presentations consider applied solutions for sustainable and prosperous livelihoods in the drylands.
The thematic focus of the 3rd conference will consider the restoration of degraded drylands. This “positive” orientation embraces the notion that trend need not be destiny, and that most desertified lands, ecosystems and economies can at least rehabilitated. 
The brochure, that can be downloaded from the conferences website, offers a description of the substantive orientation and objectives of this year’s conference. Please visit the web-site: to see about online registration and to consider the possibility of giving a lecture or presenting a poster. 
Please note that a small number of participation and/or travel grants are available, with a preference for speakers from developing countries who have not participated in previous conferences.
I hope you will consider joining us. If you have any questions about the conference, please don’t hesitate to contact the conference coordinator, Ms. Dorit Korine ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ).
