Japan has made an important contribution to restoring and rehabilitating degraded land in CWANA through its support to ICARDA’s work on the improvement of native pastures and rangelands, and the nutrition and management of small ruminants. Not only are sheep and goats important to the economy, but also overgrazing is a serious problem in the region because of its link to soil erosion.
