In September 2019, at the UNCCD fourteenth Conference of Parties (COP14), participants have decided to establish an intergovernmental working group (IWG), on effective policy and implementation measures for addressing drought under the UNCCD.
The COP also invited Parties, international organizations and stakeholders to make submissions on:
- Policy, implementation and institutional coordination frameworks and implementation measures for addressing drought under the Convention:
- Barriers, challenges, opportunities and implementation measures in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from drought.
UNCCD stakeholders are invited to submit their information until 31 January 2020 using an online form. Relevant information will serve as initial input for the work of the IWG on drought. Information regarding available drought-related tools will be shared with all parties.
