Author Commentary 1

UNCCD Decision 14/COP.7, 1: The Desertification Synthesis of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) acknowledges inland waters with their high potential of providing ecosystem services as integral parts of drylands. The MA recognises that the projected intensification of freshwater scarcity as a result of climate change will cause greater stress on dryland ecosystems.
