Combat desertification

Every year in the world, 120,000 square kilometres of land – the equivalent to half the size of the United Kingdom – are rendered infertile by desertification. The phenomenon of land degradation occurs in the drylands of the planet, which cover 40% of the Earth’s surface and are home to 2 billion people.

Desertification is a continuing, silent disaster, with drastic effects on nature as well as on the women and men who live in it: the destruction of entire ecosystems, acceleration of climate change, and obstacles to development and an increase in poverty in countries where the environment is under threat. According to the Secretariat of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, 135 million people are likely to migrate worldwide by 2030 because of the deterioration of their land.

Siemens has focused on four major business areas: industry, energy, healthcare, infrastructure and cities to provide important support to prevent desertification.
