Desertification Prevention Institute
This institute was founded on February 23, 2010 to carry out researches on desertification which is extreme deterioration of land in arid and dry sub-humid areas due to loss of vegetation and soil moisture, as a result of current global climate change. We focuses on studies of causes and results of desertification, its prevention methodology development, and ecological system restoration. In addition, our goal is training undergraduate and graduate students who can pursue theoretical and practical studies on desertification and its prevention.
