Source: The Icelandic Government
The parliament of Iceland launched a comprehensive programme, giving the Soil Conservation Service of Iceland an operational framework for the period 2003-2014. This programme sets goals for mitigation of land degradation and decertification, revegetation of eroded land, and attaining sustainable land use. The main tools for the programme's achievements were described, and financing improved substantially, mainly for halting desertification, extending farmer involvement in healing the land, and by establishing a new land care incentives programme that was mainly intended for projects at the communal or co-operative level.
