    The suburban territories of large cities are transitional zones where intensive transformations in land use are constantly taking place. Therefore, the presented work is devoted to an integrated assessment of land use changes in the Shortandy district (Kazakhstan) based on an integrated study of the dynamics of land use and sustainable development indicators (SDIs). It was found that the main tendency in the land use of this Peri-urban area (PUA) during 1992–2018 is their intensification, through an increase in arable lands.

    An attempt was made to assess the land condition while taking into consideration environmental and socio-economical parameters that could be drivers of ongoing land degradation processes. Many of these variables have spatial and temporal characteristics and can therefore be monitored through GIS-based tools thus contributing valuable information for assessing land degradation risk.

    In recent decades, multi-spectral and hyper-spectral remotely sensed imageries with high and modern spatial resolutions at sufficient time-series interval have been developed. This allows for detecting crop types and its distribution over large areas and at short time intervals. Among the advantages of remote sensing technologies are its cost effective evaluation over extensive areas and the ability to provide reliable information on land surface conditions. This is useful also for areas with sporadic information on the spatial extent of croplands effected by for instance water scarcity.

    The year 2002 marked ICARDA's 25th anniversary, and coincided with several honors and awards for the center's excellence in research. Research on developing high-yielding kabuli chickpea varieties that thrive in cool, wet winter conditions earned the 2002 King Baudouin Award of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), jointly with the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), which focuses on desi chickpea.

    Agro-ecosystems in dry areas are sensitive to changes in climate
    and land use. The productivities of these agro-ecosystems are
    highly variable in both spatial and temporal scales. Accurate and
    up-to-date information on these production systems at farmscape to
    landscape scales are important for understanding the food security
    and sustainability of socio-ecological systems. Due to lack of such
    information, satellite remote sensing has been used to quantify the
    land productivity and degradation dynamics of agro-ecosystems

    Irrational water use and mismanagement are at the root of several environmental problems in the Aral Sea Basin, including secondary salinization. Pre-season leaching (February-March) is a common practice of farmers to manage soil salinity challenges. For example, farmers in the Khorezm region tend applying up to 600 mm of leaching volume to prevent accumulation of salts in the root-zone. However, excessive leaching volume causes the water tables to rise at 1-1.5 m depth which are dangerous depths.
