High-Level Dialogue on Desertification, Land Degradation and Drought
On 20 May, the President of the UN General Assembly, with the support of the Executive Secretary of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), will convene a High-level Dialogue to assess the progress made in the fight against drought, desertification and land degradation (DLDD). The event takes place at the UN Headquarters in New York, USA.
The dialogue seeks to maintain momentum on addressing DLDD-related challenges, with a view to accelerating SDG implementation, ecosystem restoration, climate change adaptation, mitigation and resilience, using land restoration as key entry point. It will also encourage stronger and more effective partnerships and commitments.
