Delivering Energy to the Drylands

Obligations Under the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) to Provide Energy, Water, and More

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

While energy policies are often placed in contraposition to other critical policy areas, such as water or humanitarian policies, it need not be. This chapter explores international obligations (UNCCD, GATT) to combat desertification and the effects of long-term droughts, and examines a pathway that coordinates energy policies and laws with environmental and human welfare agendas to deliver energy, water, and more to combat desertification in the dryland areas.
