This study uses an innovative approach towards integrating biophysical and socioeconomical components into environmentally sound, sustainable forest management practices in dryland regions. The text covers technical considerations in dryland forestry, agroforestry systems, rehabilitation of saline regions, investment and employment opportunities, and forestry extension programmes. Issues such as conservation, watershed management, grazing practice, livestock production, small-scale agricultural crop production and wildlife are discussed. The recreation and tourism industry is also addressed.
