The Dry arc in brief

  1. 1. DryArc Initiative Innovative and resilient agri-food systems for food and nutrition security and employment in the drylands
  2. 2. 2 Agro-ecosystems Area (m ha) % Irrigated systems 312 15 Rainfed systems 512 25 Agropastoral systems 873 43 Desert farming Potential 342 17 DryArc Region: Combining four agro-ecosystems
  3. 3. DryArc Region: Expanding with climate change 3
  4. 4. 4 High unemployment, unrest and migration Food and nutrition insecurity Demographic changes, gender inequality Land degradation and desertification Loss of agrobiodiversity High water scarcity and low efficiently Double impact of climate change; increasing temperature and reducing precipitation Urbanization and heat islands The Perfect Storm Conflicts and Fragility Malnutrition High Population Land Degradation Loss of Biodiversity Water Scarcity Climate change
