The project will develop practical, effective low-cost technologies that will increase productivity in drylands (regeneration of desert lands) while protecting these ecosystems initially for small farmers and to subsequently export the technologies, methodologies and innovation to indigenous farmers in developing regions of the world via other program ;

Given that most economies in the semi-arid regions of the world are heavily dependent on agriculture, new methods and supporting technologies are vital. This project research-for-development agenda aligns advanced desert regeneration farming ; Aiming to improve crop and livestock productivity, water productivity and application, diversified AgroForest crop production systems and creating sustainable new sources of income. Improved technologies and sustainable will be developed and disseminated. Indigenous genetic resources will be conserved, documented and utilized.

Training programs will be strengthened across national researchers, extension staff and the indigineos farmers. Perhaps most importantly, community-led participatory research approaches will be institutionalized and empowering these rural communities.
