The 3rd UNCCD scientific conference will be held during the 4th special session of the Committee on Science and Technology (CST S-4) of the UNCCD. The conference will address three major challenges:

1. Diagnosis of constraints: How to best characterize and understand the vulnerability and adaptive capacities of ecosystems (in particular agro-ecosystems) and populations in affected regions, including regions newly susceptible to the consequences of climate change?

2. Responses: How to build efficiently on available knowledge, success stories and lessons learnt to promote implementation of better adapted, knowledge-based practices and technologies?

3. Monitoring and assessment:What are the new monitoring and assessment methods available to evaluate the effectiveness of these practices and technologies that provide improved insights on whether or how their implementation should be scaled up?

The Veolia Environment Institute, together with Agence Française de Dévéloppement, International Union for Conservation of Nature, UNCCD and US National Research Council Water Science and Technology Board, will host an international conference on Large-Scale Ecosystem Restoration from 29-30 May 2014 in Washington DC, United States.
The conference provides an international platform for scientists, practitioners, NGOs, business leaders and policymakers to consider the potential of large-scale ecosystem restoration, drawing on case studies and best practices. Participants will also share insights on the potential these restoration projects have to improve livelihoods, create jobs, foster socio-economic development and recover the ecosystems’ functionalities, continuity and biodiversity.
Monique Barbut, Executive Secretary of the UNCCD, will participate in a decisions-makers segment. The segment aims to strengthen the political will and institutional schemes to translate ideas and commitments into actions for sustainable development, especially climate change mitigation and adaptation, and reversing desertification and land degradation.
