Description

With the growth of the global population, rapid urbanization, and consumption of finite land resources, the global development community is turning to long-neglected arid land for diverse urban and regional growth activities. The transformation of arid regions into urban-serving and region-serving activity spaces requires innovative technology and wise investment as well as a thorough knowledge of the problems that may lie ahead.

Development Challenges and Strategies in Global Arid Regions is a pivotal reference source that explores the cultivation of opportunities in marginal arid regions to answer growing development obstacles. The book highlights how the public, private, and social development actors use digital and other technologies to transform arid regions for the benefits of the regions, their inhabitants, and the world. While covering a wide range of topics including environmental impact, smart agriculture, and sustainable development, this book is ideally designed for government officials, policymakers, architects, engineers, private sector firms, agriculturalists, economists, programmers, software developers, academicians, researchers, and students.
