Sustainable Land Management

As a technical instrument dedicated to the sustainable development of its zone of action, OSS brings insight on major current environmental challenges and contributes to strategic reflection on Sustainable Land Management.

OSS has provided a coherent and realistic content to the Great Green Wall concept and made of it a federative program for the implementation of integrated development projects and actions. OSS strives for promoting the use of renewable energies and non-conventional waters (agricultural demonstration pilots developed in the framework of the SASS III project) and for combatting deforestation and land degradation through different projects as ILWAC and MENA-DELP.

OSS, through its awareness raising actions and capacity building activities, has contributed to a clearer notion of Land Degradation Neutrality and its importance and utility for the region.
