Convention to Combat Desertification will celebrate 25th birthday in 2019

The international community adopted the Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) in Paris on 17 June 1994out of concern that “desertification and drought are problems of global dimension in that they affect all regions of the world”. Its secretariat is based on the UN Bonn Campus.

This convention will celebrate its 25th Birthday in 2019.

On this occasion (WDCD2019) UNCCD will look back and celebrate 25 years of progress made by countries on sustainable land management. At the same time, they will look ahead to the next 25 years in which they aim to achieve land degradation neutrality.
