India's Drylands and Emerging Challenges
AbstractIn order to tackle the issues of desertification, land degradation and droughts, 22 major programmes are being implemented in the country, including, the â€œMission for Green Indiaâ€, one of the Missions under the National Action Plan on Climate Change, which will address dry land forests, in addition to other ecosystems. This report not only encompasses the Government of India's initiatives but also Civil Society's contribution in addressing the issues of desertification, land degradation and drought. This report will enable us to understand the key issues as also the measures undertaken to address the same; and will be useful for policy makers, planners, academicians, civil society groups and relevant stakeholders.
