Drought in Spain

Southern Spain could be a future target area for an Operation OASIS demonstration in Europe

Severe land degradation is now affecting 168 countries across the world, according to new research released by the UN Desertification Convention (UNCCD). Shrinking resources mean contracting economies and more money wasted on conflict.

Operation OASIS is a reforestation project supported by the FREdome Visionary Trust. We have the technology and the resources to initiate large scale reforestation starting in the coastal regions of Africa. This is is an idea of a British inventor and naturalist Andrew K Fletcher.

Time to put all our climate science, oceanography, meteorology, agriculture, hydrology, soil science and ecology knowledge into practice and get scientists working on a major colloborative initiative to restore growth.
