Land Day 2 was a one-day event organized by the Secretariat of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification with two objectives. First, to heighten the attention of policy- and decision makers to the importance of land issues in the ongoing climate change negotiations. Second, to foster constructive dialogue that could strengthen the post-2012 agreement on climate change, which is expected to be concluded in Mexico at the end of the year.
The event took place on Saturday, 5 June 2010, at the Gustav-Stresemann Institute, in Bonn, Germany, in parallel to the meetings of the subsidiary bodies of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) taking place from 31 May to 11 June 2010, in Bonn. The event was a follow-up to Land Day 1, held in 2009 under a similar context and arrangement.
Land Day 2 started at 10:00 focused on three dimensions: how synergetic implementation of the actions mandated under the climate change and desertification Conventions can be fostered at the country levels; how land and soil fit into the post-2012 climate change agreement; and what negotiators need to know about water and land assets in confronting climate change.
The sessions were as following:
* Opening session
* Keynote speech
* Panel session 1 : How synergetic implementation of the conventions on Climate Change and Desertification will foster action at the country level ?
* Panel session 2 : Land and food security in a changing climate: How do land and soil fit into the post-Copenhagen process?
* Panel session 3 : Water and land are assets in confronting climate change: What do negotiators need to know?
* Summary conclusions
