Inner Mongolia and the impact of desertification
 
42:56
In inner Mongolia the impact of desertification hits hard on the inhabitants. Nomads used to move if herds needed new and fresh grassland. With climate change the grassland is turning into a desert. Inner Mongolia is facing a desertification that costs many Mongolian their work and home. But not only the impact of desertification is a problem, also the mines are causing a lot of pollution. How are people in inner Mongolia living with the impact of desertification? In the past 30 years life for people in China has changed drastically. The third world country has become one of the world leaders and still most of us don´t know a lot about China and their habitants. How is internet access, how is life as a homosexual and why is football so popular? Photographer Ruben Terlou wants to know all that and much more. He starts a new journey through China and travels from North to South, from the steppes to the tropics. While doing that, he tries to look for answers to his questions with a camera in his hand. The first episode starts in the inland of Mongolia, where climate changes have major consequences for both ranchers and miners. Persistent droughts caused by climate change draw heavily on the lives of Mongolian herders and miners in the far north of China. On the yellowed grassland horse races and wrestling contests are still held. But many cattle farmers are forced to move, as the grassland turns into a desert. Photographer Ruben Terlou visits the inland of Mongolia with a guide and meets locals that are victims of the climate change. On his journey he sees how the mines destroy the landscape and assists an operation of a horse.

Mongolia and Korea working together to tackle desertification
 
02:35
몽골 사막화 현상에서 한국 역할 Staying with Mongolia... The Asian nation is struggling to contain the effects of desertification,... a problem which contributes to the yellow dust storms Korea has to face every now and again. Our Connie Kim traveled to Mongolia to see the steps both countries are taking to try and turn the tide. Rapid desertification has made life in the vast Mongolian desert dunes even harder for nomads who are used to the arid conditions. "This area has completely changed. Yellow dust storms are getting worse so the trees are disappearing and the sand dunes have been moving. It's these sand dunes that cover 40-percent of Mongolia's territory,... and even worse,... almost all of Mongolia is suffering from rapid desertification. " Human activity, especially mining is said to be the biggest reason causing Mongolia's desertification,... but rehabilitation projects are bringing green back to the country. In this Bagannur mine located south of the capital city mine rehabilitation projects are underway,... and this is where Korea comes in for joint cooperation. "Mongolia is rich in natural resources, but has less awareness in mine rehabilitation. Environmentally friendly development is needed. We opened an office here in 2010 and are currently working with the Mongolian government. " It is a mammoth task. Come the rainy season, rain combines with exposed minerals… and flows into nearby lakes and rivers, polluting them. "When the mining is complete, the area is flattened so that we can cover the area with soil and plant trees. We are also purifying nearby lakes that have been polluted with wastewater." The rolling green areas are where debris from mining development have been flattened and covered with soil so grass can take hold. Six mines have undergone the rehabilitation process since MIRECO opened its office in Mongolia in 2010. Through years of joint work, Mongolian workers have learned basic mine rehabilitation techniques such as flattening debris piles and covering them with soil. "With that, the two countries' ultimate aim is to build convenient facilities for area residents and convert enough land for renewable energy development in the long term.

Causes of Desertification
 
00:53
Description
Check Dams (gully rehabilitation and reclamation)
 
05:57
Soil erosion is a challenge throughout the world. Soil erosion results in the loss of soil and loss of usable land. If left unmanaged erosion will result in gullies. It is important to manage erosion in order to prevent the loss of valuable soil and to maintain the area of usable land. One technique for managing soil erosion and gullies is the construction of check dams. The check dams trap the sediment behind the check dam and slowly reclaim the land. This also helps to prevent downstream impacts. Eventually the land can be reused. There are different types of check dams depending on the severity of the gully and the rate of flow of the water e.g. simple vegetation barriers, to more hardy stone based check dams. This video demonstrates how to construct check dams in erosion channels or for gully reclamation.

More than 10 million people were affected by the previous drought in 2010, mostly in Niger and Chad. This year, the UN says up to 19 million people are at risk of going hungry. That's because of a poor harvest, rising food prices and the conflict in Mali, which is forcing thousands of people from their homes. Al Jazeera's Laura Kyle reports from Burkina Faso.

Desertification
 
12:51
Desertification is a type of land degradation in which a relatively dry land region becomes increasingly arid, typically losing its bodies of water as well as vegetation and wildlife. It is caused by a variety of factors, such as climate change and human activities. Desertification is a significant global ecological and environmental problem. This video is targeted to blind users.

Pieter Hoff Groasis Waterboxx by ©AquaPro http://www.groasis.com/en Groasis Technology (GT) Hopeland Foundation http://www.hopelandfoundation.org/ iPlant Yes, We Plant! ~~~ This video is the first of a series titled "Groasis Waterboxx - Providing Solutions to World Problems". Pieter Hoff, a former lily breeder, grower and exporter from Holland invented the Waterboxx for a number of reasons: - To reverse desertification and restore disturbed and eroded land - To generate food for the malnourished and starving population - To provide work and an income for the poor and destitute - To turn around the migration from rural areas to urban slums - To improve biodiversity and - Last but not least: To unbind carbon from the atmosphere. All this is done in a sustainable way: - Without tapping and depleting ground water levels - By employing organic farming methods and - Without using electricity. ~~~ Conversation Highlights, Part 1: What lead Pieter to invent his Groasis Waterboxx? • Drip irrigation uses large amounts of ground water. • The hot soil quickly evaporates the water. • The ground water levels are dropping worldwide. • On his trips to Italy, Pieter noticed in the Caserta region (close to Naples) how severely eroded the hills were - despite the soil's fertility. • From his professional experience as a planter he knew that every morning dew collects on the vegetation due to water condensation. • The idea occurred to him to capture this moisture for the benefit of the plants. • Wanting to help reverse desertification and provide an alternative to the depletion of ground water, Pieter vouched to conduct research and to develop his idea further. • Turning 50 in 2003 he sold his company and has been dedicating his time and resources to the worldwide introduction of his Waterboxx invention. ~~~ The images taken from this project: The First Worldwide Groasis Waterboxx Volunteer Tree Planting Project Balsareny Spain, March 2011 Organized and funded by the Social Foundation of the Bank of Catalonia For more information regarding this project, visit: http://www.groasis.com/en/photos/photoalbum/caixa

What is NOMADIC PASTORALISM? What does NOMADIC PASTORALISM mean? NOMADIC PASTORALISM meaning - NOMADIC PASTORALISM definition - NOMADIC PASTORALISM explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Nomadic pastoralism is a form of pastoralism when livestock are herded in order to find fresh pastures on which to graze. Strictly speaking, true nomads follow an irregular pattern of movement, in contrast with transhumance where seasonal pastures are fixed. However this distinction is often not observed and the term nomad used for both—in historical cases the regularity of movements is often unknown in any case. The herded livestock include cattle, yaks, sheep, goats, reindeer, horses, donkeys or camels, or mixtures of species. Nomadic pastoralism is commonly practised in regions with little arable land, typically in the developing world, especially in the steppe lands north of the agricultural zone of Eurasia. Of the estimated 30–40 million nomadic pastoralists worldwide, most are found in central Asia and the Sahel region of West Africa. Increasing numbers of stock may lead to overgrazing of the area and desertification if lands are not allowed to fully recover between one grazing period and the next. Increased enclosure and fencing of land has reduced the amount of land available for this practice. There is substantive uncertainty over the extent to which the various causes for degradation affect grassland. Different causes have been identified which include overgrazing, mining, agricultural reclamation, pests and rodents, soil properties, tectonic activity, and climate change. Simultaneously, it is maintained that some, such as overgrazing and overstocking, may be overstated while others, such as climate change, mining and agricultural reclamation, may be under reported. In this context, there is also uncertainty as to the long term effect of human behavior on the grassland as compared to non-biotic factors.

FAO Director-General calls for critical investments in agriculture in Lake Chad Basin
 
02:22
FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva calls on the international community for urgent support - a combination of immediate food assistance and food production support in addressing the hunger crisis in the strife-torn Lake Chad Basin. The crisis afflicting the region is rooted in decades of neglect, lack of rural development and the impact of climate change, FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva said today. “This is not only a humanitarian crisis, but it is also an ecological one,” Graziano da Silva said at a media briefing in Rome following his visit last week to some of the worst affected areas in Chad and northeastern Nigeria. Some 7 million people risk suffering from severe hunger in the Lake Chad Basin which incorporates parts of Cameroon, Chad, Niger and northeastern Nigeria. In the latter, some 50,000 people are facing famine. While fighting and violence have caused much of the suffering, the impact of environmental degradation and climate change including repeated droughts, are exacerbating the situation, the FAO Director-General said.

Vaccination scheme helps many people who rely on their animals in the Guera region of Chad to earn a living. In Chad, 13 out of 22 regions could be affected by this food crisis: some 2.4 million people don't have always enough to eat. In Chad, where Oxfam has been present for over 45 years, we aim to reach over 200,000 people for the current crisis with cash transfers, seed distribution, food for herds, and veterinary care. Recent evaluations suggest 12 million people across West and Central Africa are facing a food crisis following erratic rains that have caused poor food harvests and water shortages. Oxfam is gearing up our response: we hope to reach one million people across Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger with humanitarian aid.

For many centuries the people of the State of Rajasthan in Northern India have lived in uneasy balance with the Thar, the great Indian desert, but over the last 30 years that balance has begun to break down. The increase in human and livestock numbers is placing unbearable demands on Rajasthan's semi-arid land with unchecked tree destruction, overgrazing and over-cultivation creating a wasteland and leading to more desertification. Modern scientific methods are being combined with traditional systems of land management in trying to halt the encroaching desert with some success.
