UNESCO kit on combating desertification (for primary schools)

The Education Kit on Combating Desertification principally targets primary school teachers and their pupils, aged 10-12 years old, in desertification-affected countries. It demonstrates that desertification is not inevitable and that everyone has a role to play in sustainably managing the world’s drylands. The kit comprises: Learning to Combat Desertification – a teacher’s guide to desertification; Combating desertification bears Fruit – case studies on successful dryland projects; The School where the Magic Tree Grows – an animated cartoon; and a poster of the world’s drylands.
