Data reliability

The Desertification Fresk is based on data from studies or scientific reports whose recommendations guide political and economic decisions on a global scale: FAO, UNCCD, IPCC, etc.

The fresk and its solutions were validated by scientists from the CGIAR and the French Scientific Committee against Desertification CSFD, guaranteeing the reliability of the information present on the maps and their links.
