This is conceptual work rather than work specificContinue reading “Case Study: Ecosystem Restoration Camp Concept”

Case Study: Desert Ecosystem Restoration

This case study is a project I am currently working on in Somalia. This site is located just south west of Garowe, in Puntland, north-eastern Somalia. The region has a hot desert climate, with hot to very hot temperatures (average highs of 29-41 degrees) year round and an annual average precipitation of just 133mm.
