The webinar worked to document, systematise and share successful experiences and strategies for sustainable management of drylands to avoid new initiatives from “reinventing the wheel.” This is the first in a series of webinars that aims to showcase participatory documentation tools that have proven to effectively disseminate knowledge from local communities in dryland regions to the rest of the world.

The webinar has been organized on the occasion of the International Desertification and Drought Day to explore and celebrate ongoing initiatives and tools that are being developed and trialed to support the decision-making and monitoring of restoration activities for healthy lands. The event will feature presentations from:
