  • People in drylands are highly dependent upon ecosystem services to provide their basic needs. However, desertification cause a reduction in ecosystem services and a loss in human well-being.
    Desertification is also associated with biodiversity loss and contributes to global climate change.
    desertification in morocco is ascribed to different reasons ,for example in Tamgroute, a small southern village near zagora -morocco-, people suffer from unspeakable poverty. They have to cut down trees to supply fuel for their kilns to make different types of pottery. Yet, they do not replace those trees. As a result, the area becomes dry. also, many farmers in the region are not familiar with good methods of irrigation.
    our school 'sidi ahmed bennacer' zagora -morocco has woeked with Bedale highschool on desertification and drought project .also some students in our school were looking at how much water can be uses in a daily basis and see if it can be reduced.
