Case Studies

Talupula, AP, India

In May of 2009, I visited the semi-arid region of Andhra Pradesh, India at the invitation of the Green Tree Foundation. The environmental degradation of this region which had formerly been a dry-tropical region of forest and savannah was a real jolt. If nothing is done to halt the biotic pressures of deforestation and uncontrolled grazing and to repair the damage that has been done, this region will become a desert in the not too distant future.
