Side Event Description:

The landscape of information and knowledge on desertification, land degradation and drought (DLDD) is vast and fragmented, dispersed across individuals and organizations at different levels and locations.  Several DLDD knowledge repositories exist, but most operate individually and concentrate their resources on developing knowledge products, rather than on improving access to these.The side event will also analyse the fundamental role the UNCCD, with its large convening power, can play in filling this gap by facilitating collaboration between DLDD-knowledge producing entities and by simplifying and consolidating retrieval and dissemination of DLDD knowledge assets. In doing so, it will present the direction of  the Scientific Knowledge Brokering Portal (SKBP) to Parties, scientific institutions, international organizations and NGOs, with the aim of gathering comments, opportunities, and suggestions for potential partnerships and content.
