Desertification, Land Degradation and Drought

  1. 1.
  2. 2. International Disaster and Risk Conference Davos 2010<br />Plenary 4 (Tue 2.1)<br />Desertification, Land Degradation and Drought<br />
  3. 3. Desertification, Land Degradation and Drought<br />Plenary 4 <br />
  4. 4. We have to urgently analyse and react strongly and effectively to the negative effect of:<br />Globalisation specially for the developing countries in DLDD context:<br /><ul><li>Death of small scale agriculture, animal husbandry, forest dwellers, fisherman
  5. 5. Death of autonomy, independence and cultural resilience
  6. 6. Death of food sovereignty
  7. 7. Death of local biodiversity </li></ul>2. State land reform conservation<br /> 3. Good Governance<br /> 4. Mal distribution of food<br /> 5. Role of multinational in relation with food control<br /> 6. Big and polluted industries for the profit of developed countries<br /> 7. Country driven priorities instead of community driven priorities as a real actors in DLDD<br />
  8. 8. Wrong understanding of the Development we have to Redefine the word “development” and “sustainable development” and imposed them seriously, through Conventions to the decision makers and expert of the country members:<br />example: <br /> Destroying and wiping out Amazon forest for soya plantation with the name of Agro-fuel. Unfortunately you see always the multinationals behind since the green revolution. <br /> Or<br /> Wiping away in my country 4000 years forest for industries and cities development in the middle of the desert or for passing pipelines for gas and oil<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. Looming destruction of1000 years heritage forest, for non-adequate agriculture in the heart of the desert <br />Failing ,urbanisation endangering the 1000 years heritage forest in the heart of the desert<br />
  11. 11. In most of the national strategy of state decision making no place for traditional and local technologies,<br />No place for thousands of years of trial and errors,<br /> Unfortunately today most of the Decision makers believe that 100 years of modern technologies can replace the local and traditional one, and resolve the DLDD problems<br />Example: big dams are failure, pesticides and chemicals are failure, GMOs are failure, agro fuels are failure in relation with DLDD and did not resolved and far for the problems, poverty and soil degradation …….<br />
  12. 12. UNCCD urgently needs legal mechanisms for integrating and exchanging modern and traditional knowledge between researcher, civil society, indigenous and local people and policy makers. And to enter the UNCCD processes and negotiations<br /> By combining and hybridising their knowledge researchers and local communities can interact to produce more relevant and effective policy and practice to combat desertification<br />
  13. 13. <ul><li>Governments should accept that Local and IndigenousAction are essential to managing crisis in dryland and climate change,
  14. 14. Administrative decentralisation connected to local action,
  15. 15. Changing natural resources state laws and policies for sustainable local and indigenous development laws, in this sense UNCCD should do better
  16. 16. Connecting strongly local actions with UNCCD 10 year strategy plan with participatory action,
  17. 17. Local organization contribute to ecosystem and social system resilience, avoiding or diminishing crises. There are several concrete actions governments can take to do so, </li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Enhance Serious synergy between environmentally conventions from a local, and operational perspective,
  18. 18. Enhance participation of CSOs in national and international policy development and discussions,
  19. 19. Engage the CSOs and local administration and provide resources for them to work together,
  20. 20. Revisiting state land reform, conservation of NRM should be returned to indigenous and local people. This should maybe resolve a part of DLDD and poverty problems, </li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Strict Environmental Impact Assessment mechanisms should be imposed through conventions to countries for the introduction of modern and high- tech technologies (like big dams, pesticides, GMOs, agro-fuels, nano etc….)</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Clean energy should be taken seriously in relation with climate change and carbon emission
  21. 21. Moratorium to agro-fuels
  22. 22. Preserving seriously biodiversity and moratorium to biopiracy
  23. 23. Food sovereignty, preservation of small scale agriculture, preventing massive exodus</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Community driven priority should be taken as seriously as national driven priority for the formulation of project and development of strategies for national action plan in harmony with the environmental conventions,</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Sustainable and adequate use of natural resources,
  24. 24. Adequate and participatory management of natural resources,
  25. 25. Respect of indigenous and local technologies in relation with DLDD,
  26. 26. Participatory monitoring and evaluation for DLDD, </li></li></ul><li>Thank you for your attention<br />Drynet brings together14 CSOs to strengthen civil society <br />networks to influence dryland development policies <br />Khadija Razavi Centre for Sustainable Development Iran<br />
