Abstract

This paper briefly describes COST Action ES1104 “Arid lands restoration and combat of desertification: Setting up a drylands and desert restoration hub”. (COST - European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is one of the longest running European frameworks supporting cooperation among scientists and researchers across Europe.) This networking project’s focus is to provide a hub of knowledge particularly relating to the practical methods of vegetation establishment and restoration as well as sustainable land management in arid and dryland areas. The aim of the Action is to coordinate experts in many fields (hydrology, soils, ecology, agronomy, landscape planning, etc.) to accumulate traditional and scientific knowledge as well to innovate through collaborations. Education and training are a key part of the Action, and post-graduate students have the opportunity to undertake short-term scientific missions and training schools. The Action will continue for 4 years and provide an important source of information on the combat of desertification and arid and dry lands restoration for all stakeholder groups.
