“Drought-prone and drought-prone areas are not only ecological but also home to 2.5 billion people,” he said. “30% of the world’s dry land is in Asia, and much of it needs to be rehabilitated. This is not impossible. Despite difficult times, the Republic of Korea has restored its current forest ecosystem.
