Secretariat of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD)


 

By striving to achieve land degradation neutrality, the UNCCD supports countries to secure the health and productivity of the land, mitigate the effects of drought and make people and ecosystems more resilient to climate change.

The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) is the only legally binding international agreement on land issues. The Convention promotes good land stewardship. Its 196 Parties aim, through partnerships, to implement the Convention and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular target 15.3. The end goal is to protect our land from over-use and drought, so it can continue to provide us all with food, water and energy. By sustainably managing land and striving to achieve land Degradation neutrality, now and in the future, we will reduce the impact of climate change, avoid conflict over natural resources and help communities to thrive.
