Awareness raising

 “Advocacy, awareness raising and education” are one of the main pillars of the 10-Year Strategy, which aims to drive the UNCCD “to actively influence relevant international, national and local processes and actors in adequately addressing desertification/land degradation and drought-related issues. (Operational objective 1)”. Through various events and campaigns, the UNCCD secretariat raises awareness about the importance of sustainable land management and combatting desertification, land degradation and mitigating the effects of drought. 

Proverbs on land and soil

Humanity has lived and depended on land since ancient times. Wise men and women from different places and cultures have offered words of wisdom on how precious land and soil are to our fundamental being. They had different ways of saying so. Proverbs therefore show how deeply the land and soil are rooted in our well-being.
