Quotes & Wishes - Devastating consequences of drought, desertification and land degradation in Africa Devastating consequences of drought, desertification and land degradation in Africa

Nowhere is this challenge more critical - and the need for action more pressing - than in the Horn of Africa. From Kenya to Ethiopia, Djibouti to Somalia, the devastating consequences of drought, desertification and land degradation are playing out before our eyes. The worst drought in 60 years has placed more than 13.3 million people -- predominately women and children -- in need of emergency assistance.

Quotes & Wishes - For the sake of our children and our future For the sake of our children and our future

For the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change. Now, it’s true that no single event makes a trend. But the fact is the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15. Heat waves, droughts, wildfires, floods—all are now more frequent and more intense. We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science—and act before it’s too late.
Barack Obama

Quotes & Wishes - Land-related crises will mutate into new global crises Land-related crises will mutate into new global crises

Land degradation is a global phenomenon, with 78 percent of the degrading land taking place in the non-drylands. Degrading the buffer zone of the drylands increases drylands’ vulnerability to degradation. The demand for productive land is high and competition over various land uses is intense. The recent food crises were not accidents and they are not over. But in an increasingly interdependent world, land-related crises will mutate into new global crises.
(the executive secretary of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification)

Quotes & Wishes - The causes of land degradation The causes of land degradation

The causes of land degradation vary, and include socio-economic, biophysical, climatic and land-use factors. Alien invasive plants also suck up scare water resources, adding to the challenge. Although the causes may vary from region to region, the effects are equally devastating. Both degradation and desertification are the most critical environmental issues of our time.They are linked to food security, poverty, urbanisation, climate change and biodiversity loss.

Quotes and wishes: «Desertification and Drought»

Quotes & Wishes - Too often the international community reacts too late Too often the international community reacts too late

Drought does not have to become famine. Too often the international community reacts too late. Too often decisions are taken based on false economies. In the end, we count the cost not just in human lives but in the extra expense of responding to crises that could have been averted for a fraction of the price. The world’s drylands are too often an investment desert, seen by governments and the international community as a lost cause.
Ban Ki-moon
