    Delegates from 100 countries began a conference in Kenya on Monday (29 August) to try to find ways of halting the relentless advance of the world's deserts. They were told that the planet would lose one-third of its agricultural land by the end of the century unless the advance was halted.

    SYNOPSIS: The two-week conference being held in Nairobi, was opened by the Kenyan vice-president Daniel Arap Moi. Its aim is to draw up a master plan to curb desert expansion. That will be presented to the United Nations. Egypt's Mostafa Tolba, head of the UN environment programme, was among the speakers.
