Deserts cover one third of the world's land mass, and are growing at an alarming rate. Camels, Flamingoes, endangered species and specific flora can be found in arid areas. Encroaching deserts are estimated to affect 250 million people, however for those who have always lived in some of the driest locations on earth, there are a range of skills and traditions designed to help cope with the "arid" life.
