Assessing environmental quality in Mediterranean areas as a basis for combating desertification


Assessing environmental quality in Mediterranean areas as a basis for combating desertification



Advances in Geoecology 36: 303-311



This paper presents a case study on the application of an indicator-based approach at the municipality level in Tabernas, Alneria, Southeast Spain, where extreme environmental conditions and land use pattern changes over the last decades have led to increased risk of desertification. This approach, adapted specifically to the European arid Mediterranean, assess environmental quality and help decision makers combat desertification and its consequences on natural resource functioning.
