Mélanie Requier-Desjardins specializes on the socio-economics of desertification and land degradation, specifically in the MENA and sub-Saharan Africa regions.

Since 1998, her research work is focused on socio-economics and environmental change in dryland areas from two main perspectives: long-term understanding of the interactions between different types of rules of access to natural resources and natural resources availability for enhancing rural development process, from institutional perspectives in particular; and the valuation of social and economic costs and benefits of desertification process and of actions to combat desertification. Dr Requier-Desjardins has followed up the UNCCD negotiations since 2005.

Her PhD (2001) is on pastoral land tenure issues in sub-Saharan Africa.
