This book is the story of a successful project, product of an international collective action driven by academics and environmental service providers in southern Europe concerned about the future of the earth or what we can call the emergency facing planet Earth. The lessons learned here should be repeated throughout the world. The document in your hands includes an evaluation of the LANDCARE project, which focused on training in the development of human skills with the aim of preventing land degradation, while simultaneously searching for ways of restoring degraded land. Loss of soil, forest fires, salinization and deforestation are all real problems that are affecting the earth and will have serious repercussions for the provision of environmental services in the near future. Ways of preparing human resources to face this emergency are urgently needed. Eco-industry, the response of science and technology to the problem of land degradation, is a fundamental pillar of the European economy and will soon also be so in the rest of the world. In the specific case of continental Europe, the market value of the eco-industry has increased to almost double that of the car industry. In addition, European companies control approximately one third of the world market of available solutions to environmental problems. All of this led a group of international experts to propose the project described in detail in this document.
