UNCCD launches campaign to promote gender equality

On the occasion of the UNCCD 25th anniversary and within the implementation of its Gender Action Plan (GAP), the UNCCD secretariat is launching a campaign during the month of March to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.

Every day in the first half of March, the secretariat will publish stories that portray the work of participating organizations in empowering women and girls, particularly as described in the GAP.

The best contributions will also be used as material for UNCCD’s campaigns around the meetings of the Commission on the Status of Women and for the celebrations of the World Day to Combat Desertification on 17 June.
