    Human expansion throughout the world caused that agriculture is a dominant form of land management globally. Human influence on the land is accelerating because of rapid population growth and increasing food requirements. To stress the interactions between society and the environment, the driving forces (D), pressures (P), states (S), impacts (I), and response (R) Cited by: 7. Desertification is defined by the United Nations as ‘ land degradation in arid, semi-arid and sub-humid areas resulting from various factors including climatic variations and human activities’.It remains one of the biggest environmental problems of today and is affecting more than countries. The impacts of desertification vary from place to place.

      Sustainable land management is important to protect our environment and our industries. Current Projects A snapshot of the broad range of soil management and rehabilitation projects in the SA Arid Lands region. The sustainable development examples surveyed earlier, allude to some measure of sustainability of cities within the arid regions. However, were these to be compared to their fulfillment of the master plan and development issues as listed in Table 1, then the shortcomings of each case could be immediately apparent, in comprehensively tackling Cited by:

    Rural-urban and interregional migration indicate regional unsustainability. Through migra- tion, the specific conditions of semi-arid regions affect the sustainability of other regions, such as urban areas and tropical forests.9 It seems that there is a tendency for increasing unsustainability and vulner- ability in semi-arid by: 2. By relating various ecological systems to the question of sustainability in arid lands, this book offers fresh directions for research and management. It provides an overview of the arid and semi-arid land situation in three major arid systems: the Negev of Israel, the Sonoran-Chiuahuan deserts of North America, and the arid lands of Australia.

As a result, the sustainability of land resources in semiarid and arid ecosystems, such as Turkey that has high sensitivity to land degradation in terms of climate, soil and topographic conditions, is directly related to the effective implementation of sustainable land management : Selen Deviren Saygin.
