Description: The International Arid Lands Consortium (IALC) was established in 1990 to promote research, education, and training activities related to the development, management, and reclamation of arid and semiarid lands in the Southwestern United States, the Middle East, and elsewhere in the world. The Consortium supports the ecological sustainability and environmentally sound stewardship of these lands in continuing to increase the knowledge base for managers and land owners. Research and development efforts that relate to the IALC's mission are incubated at research centers of its member institutions such as the Santa Rita Experimental Range. Results from the scientific and technical projects supported by the IALC on soil and water resources development and conservation, land use and reclamation, processes enhancing ecological management, and inventorying techniques and monitoring are made available to managers and land owners to improve stewardship of arid and semiarid ecosystems while maintaining the integrity of the ecological processes.

Keywords: arid lands, semiarid lands, research, development, demonstration projects
