Greening the Desert Project Outcomes Profiled

Most readers will be familiar with the awesome, seemingly miraculous work Geoff and Nadia Lawton accomplished with the ‘Greening the Desert‘ project in Jordan (not to be confused with the new Jordan Valley Permaculture Project, where completely new miracles are under way).

Well, this work has now been well profiled in the ProAct Network’s recent release:

The Role of Environmental Management in Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation, Annex I, Case Studies (4.69mb PDF). Jump to page #59 in Acrobat Reader, or #98 if you’re scrolling by page numbers.

If you’re looking for more practical details on what happened, and is happening, there on the ground – this document should hit the spot, as it were.

Thanks to Andrew Jones for bringing this to my attention.


  1. This was a good read, and a fill-in from the sketchy details I saw on the You-Tube clip. With the little info in the article, I managed to find the site in Jordan on Google Maps (satellite view) and it looks SO different from the surrounding agricultural plots. Congratulations to all
