Abstract: "Sustainable development that promotes ecological sustainability and human well-being is a practical necessity of our times. Ecological sustainability can not be achieved without reducing poverty and provisioning for the just and dignified improvements in livelihoods. Likewise, nor can sustainable human well-being be achieved without sustainable environmental management. Therefore, investing in creation, communication and linking knowledge to field and policy action is necessary for both poverty reduction and ecosystem sustainability. Linking knowledge to action is necessary to concurrently combat desertification and ensure livelihoods of people dwelling in dry tropics. Scientists and practitioners are required to be aware of the intricacies about what makes knowledge applicable and what it takes to produce the science that makes an impact on the ground."
