The role of the National Focal Point to the UNCCD

The National Focal Points (NFPs) are the first and main point of contact for the Parties as regards the entire UNCCD process. This e-learning course is aimed at helping to capacitate NFPs through giving them the opportunity to better understand what their functions are; and to develop the necessary skills to carry out the same. The course is open to everyone interested in the UNCCD process and consists of 5 sections dealing with the bodies of the convention, the role of the NFP at the national, sub-regional and regional level, the role of the NFP in the UNCCD reporting process and the role of the NFP at the UNCCD Conference of Parties (COP).
