Land Restoration: Reclaiming Landscapes for a Sustainable Future (PDF) provides a holistic overview of land degradation and restoration in that it addresses the issue of land restoration from the scientific and practical development points of view. Furthermore; the breadth of chapter topics and contributors cover the topic and a wealth of connected issues; such as development; security; and environmental issues. The use of graphics and extensive references to case studies also make the work accessible and encourage it to be used for reference; but also in active field-work planning.

The Land Restoration: Reclaiming Landscapes for a Sustainable Future ebook brings together practitioners from academia; governments; NGOs; and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) to exchange lessons to enrich the academic understanding of these issues and the solution sets available.

  • Provides practical tools for designing and implementing restoration/re-greening processes.
  • Includes practical on-the-ground examples garnered from diverse areas; such as the Southeast Asia; Sahel; and the U.S.A.
  • Provides accessible information about the science behind land degradation and restoration for those who do not directly engage with the science allowing full access to the issue at hand.
