The great desert hypothesis in particle physics defines the relation between the electroweak scale and the high scale where an unified theory could describe physics. In this talk I review the desert hypothesis and discuss the main experimental constraints from rare decays. I present a new class of theories for the TeV scale where the desert hypothesis is not needed. The implications for cosmology, collider experiments and the unification of forces are discussed.
