A major barrier to Sustainable Land Management (SLM) in drylands is the lack of knowledge management (KM) for mitigating land degradation. Knowledge management includes information management and dissemination, as well as knowledge enhancement and capacity building for adaptive management. KM:Land aims to lay the foundations for a comprehensive system to track progress across the Global Environment Facility (GEF) land degradation focal area. It provides the scientific-technical basis for selecting indicators to demonstrate the benefits, impacts, and best practices of SLM projects in the GEF portfolio, as well as through the creation of an online learning network.
