Access information on Multilateral Environmental Agreements

Definition(s)
Regions where the climate is intermediate between semiarid and humid, and the precipitation supports dense growth of tall or short grasses, but not forests. Sub-humid lands, including arid and semi-arid regions, grasslands, savannahs, and Mediterranean landscapes, encompass approximately 47% of the Earth's terrestrial area, with the largest areas found in Australia, China, Russia, the United States, and Kazakhstan. There are six countries with at least 99% of their area classified as dry and sub-humid lands: Botswana, Burkina Faso, Iraq, Kazakhstan, the Republic of Moldova, and Turkmenistan.
