This is the blog site of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). Developed as a result of the Rio Summit, the UNCCD is a unique instrument that has brought attention to the land degradation affecting some of the most vulnerable people and ecosystems in the world. It has 195 Parties (194 countries plus the European Union), of which 167 are affected by desertification. The UNCCD is increasingly recognized as an instrument that can make an important contribution to the achievement of sustainable development and poverty reduction.
