World Day Combat Desertification

The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) presents

"World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought"



World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought is observed every year to promote public awareness of international efforts to combat desertification.

The day is a unique moment to remind everyone that land degradation neutrality is achievable through problem-solving, strong community involvement and co-operation at all levels.

Find out more about what is desertification and what is being done to help stop this at http://www.un.org/en/events/desertificationday
