About the UNCCD
Established in 1994, the United Nations Convention to Combat
Desertification (UNCCD) is the sole legally binding international
agreement linking environment and development issues to the land agenda.
The Convention focuses on all the world’s drylands, home to over 2 billion
people, 50% of the world’s livestock and accounting for 44% of all
cultivated ecosystems. The Convention’s 194 Parties are dedicated to
combating land degradation and mitigating the effects of drought in the
drylands by improving the living conditions of the affected populations
and ecosystems.
