West Asia

Drylands, Livelihood and Gender Programme

Opportunities for livelihoods

The Programme contributes to the rehabilitation of rangelands in the West Asia region, to further provide nature-based solutions and ecosystem services needed to improve livelihoods through better participatory management, gender equality and better integration of the local communities.

The programme’s strength is in contributing to the revival of the Hima concept within local communities, which in turn prevents desertification. Hima is an inherited protective system, which was followed by Bedouin to manage grazing and maintain the area preserved.
