In this e-learning course, participants get familiar with the concepts of landscape degradation. Governance, legal and political aspects are outlined and the manifold and interrelated causes of landscape degradation are analysed in some detail. Different types of landscape degradation are presented. The rehabilitation and restoration is then demonstrated with reference to farmlands, forests, and wetlands. The complexity of all degradation and restoration dynamics is highlighted with two case studies from Ethiopia and China.
