IALCInternational Arid Lands Consortium

Promoting Peace Through Collaborative Research & Development

The IALC facilitates collaborative research and practical application of new knowledge that promotes peace, particularly in the Middle East, through the development of sustainable agricultural and natural resources practices. The IALC is dedicated to exploring problems and solutions that improve the lives of people living in the arid and semiarid regions of the world. These regions cover one-third of the Earth’s surface and support more than one-fifth of the world’s population.
