Acacia modesta: A frost-resistant and drought-tolerant tree ideal foralleviating feed shortages and feeding costs. Climate change and intensive grazing due to increasing livestock numbers are severely affecting arid and semi-arid rangelands. In an attempt to support local communities highly dependent on livestock, ICARDA is encouraging the use of drought-tolerant trees, shrubs and grasses with a view to protect limited water resources and develop sustainable grazing.
