The Italian Environment Protection Agency (ANPA), and the Desertification Research
Centre at the University of Sassary have worked jointly to provide decision-makers
with an in-depth analysis of the state of the art and methodologies applicable to the
evaluation of the desertification phenomenon.
ANPA has promoted this important research activity, within the wider and more
dynamic framework of actions it conducts in the Italian National Committee,
providing its support to the definition and start up of the National Plan to Combat
Desertification and Drought.
The complexity of the phenomena and their causes leads to the individuation of a
plurality of “actors” who might take the responsibility to carry out actions aimed at
combating Desertification and Drought.
Indicators represent a crucial link in the chain that, from knowledge, leads to taking
decisions and promoting responsible behaviours: starting from an evaluation of the
various, physical, biologic, socio-economic processes that contribute to land
degradation and desertification, the goal is to individuate indicators that might prove
useful in territorial planning and public information activities, and that might be a
suitable answer to the request for direct knowledge of the status and evolution of the
phenomenon, as well as the opportunity to take actions aimed at mitigating and,
above all, preventing the occurrence of the phenomenon.
