UNCCD and IPBES sign a memorandum of cooperation
Bonn, Germany – The Executive Secretary of UNCCD Ms. Monique Barbut and the Executive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) Ms. Anne Larigauderie have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation between the two organizations. The productive collaboration between UNCCD and IPBES has already resulted in such landmark products as the Global Land Outlook and the assessment on land degradation and restoration. The new memorandum will formalize this partnership, helping to coordinate the science and action that address the full spectrum of environmental issues behind climate change.
"In this memorandum, we are witnessing the start of real alignment between land, climate and biodiversity as we move toward 2030," Ms. Barbut said.
