    A large number of vegetation indices have been developed and widely applied
    in terrestrial ecosystem research in the recent decades. However, a certain limitation was
    observed while applying these indices in research in dry areas due to their low sensitivity
    to low vegetation cover. In this context, the objectives of this study are to develop a new
    vegetation index, namely, the Generalized Difference Vegetation Index (GDVI), and to
    examine its applicability to the assessment of dryland environment. Based on the field

    MENA’s permanent cropland – currently at less than 6% of the total land area – is shrinking due to serious land degradation and recurrent droughts. The region faces the most severe water shortage in the world with annual renewable water resources per capita estimated to decline from 1,045 m3/yr in 1997 to 740 m3/yr in 2015.

    2013 has been a fruitful year for ICARDA marked by research accomplishments and a sense of gratitude. Our longstanding partner countries provided important support in making decentralization of the Center’s research a reality. This transition positions our research programs to more expressly target agroecosystem-based solutions, needed for wider impacts.

    This research was carried out in three agro-climatic regions of Mali (Mopti, Koulikoro and Sikasso) to assess
    contour bunding technology (CBT) for improved land and water management. Reference was made to
    existing literature and field surveys were conducted following georeferencing and quantification of existing
    land and water management technologies. Farmers’ perceptions towards the use of the most commonly
    applied technologies were assessed. Results indicate that CBT is widely adopted in farmers’ fields to

    Land degradation occurs in all continents and affects the livelihoods of millions of people, including a large proportion of
    the poor in the drylands. Opuntiaficus-indica (L.) Mill. is a xerophytic cactus species, widely cultivated in arid and semi-arid regions
    worldwide. As most of species of the Cactacee family, 0. fiCUS-indica exhibits Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM), with
    nocturnal stomata opening and C02 uptake occurring, typically, from dusk to dawn. Many reasons may account for the great interest

    Biodiversity continues to decline in the face of increasing anthropogenic pressures such as habitat destruction, exploitation, pollution and introduction of alien species. Existing global databases of species’ threat status or population time series are dominated by charismatic species. The collation of datasets with broad taxonomic and biogeographic extents, and that support computation of a range of biodiversity indicators, is necessary to enable better understanding of historical declines and to project – and avert – future declines.

    The Chinyanja Triangle (CT) is an area inside the Zambezi
    River Basin, inhabited by Chinyanja-speaking people
    sharing a similar history, language and culture across
    the dryland systems of the eastern province of Zambia,
    southern and central regions of Malawi and Tete Province
    of Mozambique. Chiefs and Chiefdoms play a critical role
    in decision making and influencing social relationships. The
    Zambezi River, which originates in the Kalene Hills in Zambia
    is joined by ten big tributaries from six countries, and is
