Map from the DISMED project (Desertification Information System for the Mediterranean) showing the sensitivity to desertification and drought as defined by the sensitivity to desertification index (SDI) based on soil quality, climate and vegetation parameters.

The adopted methodology is inspired by the one developed in the
framework of the MEDALUS project (Mediterranean Desertification And Land Use).
Sensitivity to the desertification of the different spatial homogeneous units is
defined by an index (ISD: index of sensitivity to the Desertification) obtained
from the geometrical average of three indexes of the soil quality, climate and
vegetation. This raster version was built from a calculation within three
indexes: Soil (Soil Database V2 (JRC)), Vegetation (CLC 2000) and Climate

Think twice before buying more toys for your children.
Many of them are used only very shortly and then thrown away. Go for high-quality, long-lasting toys that can be used by several generations of children. Selling old toys on a flea market can give your toys a second life and can be much fun for you and the kids.
