The aims of the course were to: (i) present the latest scientific and technical advances in land restoration with the purpose of combating desertification; (ii) improve knowledge on how to effectively restore degraded drylands, from project planning to the implementation and monitoring phases; and (iii) introduce available tools to monitor desertification processes. Case-studies from Mediterranean countries were discussed and relevant high-profile international initiatives were introduced.
