Bonn, Germany – Once again UNCCD has joined other UN organizations based in Bonn for a yearly celebration in the historic Marktplatz on 20 October 2018. To entice the crowds to visit the UNCCD booth and learn more about the organization's work, the Capacity Building Marketplace team designed fun activities to engage guests of all ages. They could trace a maze or spin the roulette for a chance to win a prize by answering a question related to one of the UNCCD focus areas: land degradation neutrality, sustainable land management, The Drought Initiativesand and dust storms, land and human securityland and gender, land and climate change. Another big draw for the guests was a table presenting UNCCD publications, including the Global Land Outlook. Among many visitors who came to support UNCCD and its work toward sustainable development goal 15 "Life on Land" were the Mayor of Bonn Mr. Ashok Alexander Sridharan and the Consul General of Turkey in Cologne Mr. Baris Ceyhun Erciyes.
