The Strategy foresees that the CST, in cooperation with relevant institutions, creates and steers knowledge management systems aiming to improve the brokering of scientific and technical information from and to institutions, Parties and end users. Additionally it was decided that the secretariat develops its capacity to service the CST effectively by, inter alia, supporting the knowledge management systems established by the CST and performing information and knowledge brokering functions.
Also decision 4/COP.9 requests the secretariat to continue building up efficient knowledge management and knowledge brokering systems to serve as tools for successful implementation of the comprehensive communication strategy.
The UNCCD secretariat has launched a call for expressions of interest to become a partner in
UNCCD scientific knowledge brokering. This call targets organisations
and institutions that are in a position to provide information through
