World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought
Don't let your future dry up!
Even parts of Europe are already affected by water stress. Especially Spain is concerned for several years about it. The irresponsible use of water in agriculture and in the tourist areas is taking its toll.
Much worse it goes much of Africa. In many areas, the deserts are expanding, because the ground is dry and the groundwater level is too low. Dry and saline soils do not offer a habitat to most plants. Prof. Willem lists in his blog many drought-resistant plants and many other interesting articles on the subject of desertification.
