UNCCD travels carbon-neutral to COP14
UNCCD will travel carbon-neutral to COP14 in New Delhi. Unavoidable travel-related greenhouse gas emissions will be compensated by contributing to the Adaptation Fund of UN Climate Change (UNFCCC), which finances projects and programs in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.
The 14th session of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) will take place from 2 to 13 September 2019 in New Delhi, India.
It is expected to review the progress made, especially during the last two years, to control and reverse further loss of productive land from desertification, land degradation and drought. These are considered growing threats to peace and security in both developed and developing countries due to the widespread loss of livelihoods for communities and even entire regions.
