Conserving Biodiversity in Arid Regions: Best Practices in by J. Lemons,Reginald Victor,Daniel Schaffer

By J. Lemons,Reginald Victor,Daniel Schaffer

at the eve of the realm Summit for Sustainable improvement (WSSD), held in autumn 2002 in Johannesburg, South Africa, United countries Secretary normal Kofi Annan suggested 5 particular parts as focal issues of dialogue for the worldwide discussion board: Water, power, health and wellbeing, agriculture and biodiversity.
