Outcome area 1.3
Civil society organizations and the scientific community in the North and the South are increasingly engaged as stakeholders in the Convention processes and desertification/land degradation and drought are addressed in their advocacy, awareness-raising and education initiatives
Number and type of DLDD-related initiatives of civil society organizations (CSOs) and science and technology institutions (STIs) in the field of education
Global target
A steady growth in the number of DLDD-related education initiatives undertaken by CSOs and STIs is recorded along the implementation period of The Strategy
To be reported on by
Understanding the indicator
At the national level, the indicator measures the number of DLDD-related initiatives undertaken by CSOs and STIs in the education sector.
Reporting at the subregional/regional level will complement this information by shedding light on support provided to CSO and STI education initiatives at levels other than the national or local level, while reporting from international institutions may provide information on support provided at all levels.
The assumption is that the higher the number of DLDD-related education initiatives undertaken by these stakeholders, the stronger their interest in addressing DLDD problems.
This indicator focuses on education, because awareness and advocacy are already measured through indicators CONS-O-1 and CONS-O-2, respectively.
Reporting entities can complement the information provided under this indicator by reporting further details on what kind of initiatives they are undertaking in order to increase the number of DLDD-related education activities undertaken by CSOs and STIs.
Data needed
§  Information on initiatives undertaken in the field of education;
§  Information provided by CSOs on CONS-O-4.
Please note that only initiatives in the field of education undertaken in the country or at subregional/regional or global level that are directly relating to DLDD issues are to be considered.
Data sources
§  Reports and other written communications by CSOs and STIs to the NFP;
§  Contractual and/or programme-/project-related documents;
§  Records of academic bodies and their curricula;
§  Internet resources made available by CSOs and STIs;
§  Reports provided by CSOs within the framework of the UNCCD reporting exercise.

National contribution to the global target
In order to identify which initiative in the field of education has been undertaken by CSOs and STIs, refer to the relevant definitions in the glossary. Please consider information provided by both the CSOs that are accredited by the Conference of the Parties and those that are not.
Please be reminded that ACPs should report on initiatives undertaken in their own countries, while DCPs should report on initiative undertaken within the framework of development assistance and/or technical/scientific cooperation.
Voluntary national target
The achievement of a percentage increase of initiatives undertaken by CSOs and STIs by a given year is proposed as the national voluntary target.
The articulation of the global target for this indicator refers to two different entities, jointly considered. Should you have established separate goals for CSOs and STIs participation, this can be reported under the second voluntary national target section: leave blank the answer to the first question (“Percent increase in the number of DLDD-related education activities undertaken by CSOs and STIs, per biennium”), and report the two separate national targets for CSOs and STIs under the second question (“Which national target your country has established to measure progress in achieving the priorities established in the national action programme, if different from the target suggested above?”). Please note that the two options are mutually exclusive.
Not applicable for reporting entities other than ACPs.
Qualitative assessment
Should your country/organization undertake any action to increase the number of relevant activities, please respond affirmatively and provide any useful information with regard to the actions, activities and policies being implemented in this regard.
