We aim to secure the productivity and resilience of the land, especially in drought affected areas, for the well-being of present and future generations.
We believe the best way of achieving this is to forge a global partnership that mainstreams sustainable land management into policy and practice. We are building partnerships with key stakeholders that help deliver the ten year Strategy for the Implementation of the Convention (2008-2018) and our workplans.
In 2014-2015, we will:
Focus on key themes: such as adaptation to climate change, security and migration, reporting and increasing land and soil productivity for food security;
Focus on practical (workplan) needs: capacity building for stakeholders, knowledge management, science, policy and planning;
Prioritize partnerships with those organizations that can leverage transformative influence and change: technical organizations, networks, CSOs & business;
Move towards multi-stakeholder partnerships: where an increasing number of partners work together on joint projects;
Deliver better on existing partnership commitments.
The UNCCD will remain flexible enough to take advantage of opportunities as they arise and has a commitment to listen. The UNCCD secretariat will contribute to the success of partnership projects by delivering consistent performance and service to stakeholders.
