Abstract

The present report is the result of a study commissioned by the Desert Ecological Research Unit of Namibia in conjunction with the Ministries of Environment and Agriculture, as part of the preparation for a National Workshop on Desertification held from 4th-7th July 1994. The object of the study was to assist in the development of a framework for understanding and assessing the economic costs and factors involved in desertification, as a basis for further research and action to be undertaken in the context of a national programme to combat desertification. The study is based on the findings of a number of regional case studies and data available at national level about the socioeconomic and biophysical aspects of land degradation.
