Campaign to stop the advancing deserts gets a sponsor Poor

September 3, 2003, Reuters: Heads of governments

Environment Facility to begin curtail the tide of a growing
sea of sand. Desertification, the transformation of non-desert
land into desert usually due to improper land use, was

2 billion people to feed over the next quarter century,
desertification has caught the world’s attention.
