The authors propose an index that allows one to calculate with ease, the territorial effect of the sensitivity towards desertification, ESPI, in order to overcome the limit of MEDALUS protocol, that does not foresee an estimate of sensitivity to the desertification of a territorial patch (of municipal, provincial, regional, hydrographic area) through a single value. The index proposed by the authors has significant advantages, because it produces effective rankings, moreover classifications and consequent possibility to elaborate the comparative data with regard to different periods. The authors apply ESPI to sensitive areas of Sicily Region, articulated in eight decades of investigation (1921-2000).
