2017 World Day to Combat Desertification Online Campaign


71 million jobs can be created by 2030 if we achieve SDGs in the area of Food and Agriculture. *


World Day to Combat Desertification (WDCD) is celebrated on 17 June each year to remind everyone of the importance of healthy and productive land. #2017WDCD sends a strong message about how land contributes to the sustainability, stability and security around the world.
