CALL FOR PAPERS: 2nd International Conference on Drylands, Deserts and Desertification
The Second International Conference on Desertification, scheduled for December 2008, will be hosted by the Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research (BIDR) of Ben Gurion University of the Negev.

In November 2006 the BIDR held the first international conference on desertification, cosponsored by the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is the international partner for the 2008 conference.
