Global Mechanism

Global Mechanism

We support countries in translating the Convention into action and achieving Land Degradation Neutrality at the national level.

How we operate

As an operational arm of the UNCCD, we provide advisory services, promote partnerships and demonstrate innovations at the country level.

We aspire to be a trusted international partner that translates cutting-edge knowledge into tailored, country-level action.

How we are funded

We are funded by the Convention to serve its Parties.

We scale up support through partner funding.
