Call for Abstracts - UNCCD 2nd Scientific Conference

Call for Abstracts - UNCCD 2nd Scientific Conference 

There is a widespread consensus that the pressing issues of Desertification, Land Degradation and Drought (DLDD) are not yet properly included and addressed in today’s political and private sector agendas on global, national and local levels and that it is therefore of vital importance to raise awareness for the negative impacts but also to address opportunities that decisions regarding land management and ecosystems have. The UNCCD 2nd Scientific Conference therefore aims to gather a broad range of stakeholders - academics, policy makers, private sector and civil society actors alike - to approach DLDD from an economic and holistic point of view.
