All Parties to the UNCCD share a commitment to urgent action to combat desertification and land degradation and agree that this requires enhanced investments from national, international and private sector resources, favourable political priority setting among development partners and favourable conditions for private sector investment. Continuous support to the implementation of the Convention will require effective partnerships, comprehensive resource mobilization and aligned fund-raising.
Through our partnerships with development and funding partners we aim to strengthen the UNCCD impact chain. Investments through the UNCCD process can, through of economies of scale, help facilitate policy reform and leverage larger investment and change at national level. The UNCCD process is bringing tangible impact and measurable benefits in the drylands.

In 2012-2013 we received new additional voluntary contributions from: China, Elion Resources Group, Germany, Finland, France, Italy, Japan, Rep. of Korea, South Africa, Switzerland, Turkey.
