Technical Abstract: The special session will share and discuss experiences from different regions, namely from Tajikistan, East Africa, US, Argentina and Mongolia. Within the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) in Tajikistan 70 SLM technologies and approaches on how to implement SLM were documented with the World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT – www.wocat.net) tools in 2011. Initial results will be presented. Furthermore, a general approach for resilience-based management in the US, Argentina, and Mongolia, taking advantage in several new natural resource management concepts and technologies will be presented with a brief reference to the development of a global system for defining land potential, that complements the work described here.
