According to the data of Sustainable Land Management Program (SLMP-Phase II), around 1.5 to 2.5 million hectares of irrigated land, 3.5 to 4 million hectares of rain-fed agricultural, and 35 million hectares of rangelands are either becoming barren or non-productive annually due to DLDD causes.
According to the national program, Pakistan is being confronted with massive challenge of desertification where more than 80 percent of arid and semi-arid landscapes have been severely affected by DLDD.
Niaz Ali Khan, Chief Conservator of Forest-I of the KP Forest Department said that first ever Range Management Policy 'REDD+' (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) strategy and Green Growth Initiative (GGI) were formulated and implemented in KP mainly to deal with DLDD. He said the flagship project of PTI billion trees project was launched in 2014 with a total cost of Rs19.4486 billion out of which Rs14 billion were so far spent to increase forest land and protect soils from further erosion.
Distance Learning Assessment and Evaluation (DLDD 103) is one of the required courses that learners must complete in order to earn their certificates.
Because the DLDD program objectives are very practical-learners are expected to design and develop a distance-learning project in order to complete the program and thereby earn the certificate-and because the course activities are designed to teach practical, hands-on skills, the investigator was more interested in what learners could actually do (procedural knowledge) than what they say they can do (declarative knowledge).
Learners in the DLDD 103 course were provided with multiple opportunities to respond to what they were learning.
