Benchmark areas, action and satellite sites of the West Asia-North Africa target region

The map shows a Benchmark Area in West Asia representing SRT2-conditions, and one in North Africa typical for SRT3-conditions. The West Asia Benchmark Area contains two Action Sites. SRT2-AS1 contains the area where research is conducted on the Rangeland-livestock based system in Jordan and Syria.
SRT2-AS2 contains the area where research is conducted on the low-potential rainfed mixed crop-livestock based system.
The North Africa Benchmark Area contains one Action Site (SRT3-AS1 in Morocco) where research is conducted on sustainable intensification of the rainfed systems in North Africa. Outside the benchmark area North Africa contains two Satellite Sites, SRT2-SS1 in Tunisia, which addresses the mountainous agro-systems, rangelands and medium potential ecosystems especially those with indigenous water harvest techniques, and SRT3-SS1 in the new and old irrigated areas of the Nile Delta, which focuses research on water and land management technologies to increase productivity.
West Asia contains an integrated SRT2-SRT3 Action Site, located in the Karkhe River Basin in SW Iran, where research is conducted using a transect approach covering highland (SRT2) and lowland (SRT3) areas.
