Natural capital endowment and dynamics of the changing climate in arid and semi-arid lands: experiences from Africa and Asia

With East Africa, West Africa and Central Asia as case studies, this working paper analyses the endowment framework underlying natural resource management and drivers of natural resource degradation, including natural processes and calamities induced by climate change. It also assesses policy frameworks that embed human action in the degradation and management of natural resources in arid and semi-arid lands.
