      Africa Review Report on
      DROUGHT AND DESERTIFICATION

      http://www.un.org/...

      To reduce the root condition of poverty, a most important and feasible component is to fight desertification through a combination of development strategies and incorporation of best practices, not to mention reduction of conflict.

      Of course, the road to implementation can be a long road with many obstacles.

      With such limited resources available in the area of human rights, such as the right to food, one can only wonder why so much attention is wasted on what are, in essence, political matters, as compared to severe humanitarian situations.
