Assessing the Extent, Cost and Impact of Land Degradation at the National Level: Findings and Lessons Learned from Seven Pilot Case Studies [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
This study, commissioned by the Global Mechanism with support from the World Bank examined available national data on the extent, costs and current remedial actions concerning land degradation and sustainable land management in seven pilot countries. This was a desk study, but included countries where the authors had detailed long term knowledge. The results of the work are presented in seven case studies of China, Ethiopia, Mexico, Uganda, Rwanda, Chile and Indonesia; and this overview paper, which presents a synthesis of the lessons learned from the cases and from a review of the current academic and report literature.
