Monitoring the evolution of land degradation

Such practices are underway in worldwide campaign for the adoption of sustainable land management practices (Bradford and Peterson, 1999, Lahmar, 2010 and FAO, 2012).
The ILM response has already been initiated in the Messara Valley as a response to soil erosion, water pollution, land desertification and processes of natural resources degradation. The strategy was applied mostly in productive fields by medium-to-high income farmers and is limited by the availability of existing technologies and lack in social capital (e.g., common rules, knowledge and skills).
