Focusing on the Susceptibility to Desertification in Chicualacuala, Republic of Mozambique
Desertification is evaluated as destruction of land. In desertification assessment, a general issue is that land degradation is neither assessed explicitly, since land degradation is derived from the wider definition of environmental degradation, nor is it clearly measurable and tracked. A geo-environmental diagnosis was introduced in this paper to identify susceptibility to desertification in southern Mozambique (Chicualacuala) and to provide reactions to reverse land degradation. The environmental diagnostic method is a helpful approach to recognising the very processes and phenomena that belong to the broad definition of land degradation.
