Abstract / short description:
Understanding and Managing Desertification Tipping Points in Dryland
Social-Ecological Systems – A Namibian Perspective (NamTip).
In the NamTip project, scientists and stakeholders collaborate closely to gain a better understanding of the most important tipping point for dryland ecosystems worldwide, i.e. the tipping point at the threshold to desertification. It will generate the necessary scientific foundation to understand the development of desertification tipping points; make use of those findings to develop suitable early warning systems; explore desertification impacts on local people’s livelihood; and finally transfer and
implement the scientific findings into management interventions in order to prevent the desertification tipping point.
