Launch of the new WOCAT Global Database on Sustainable Land Management (SLM)

Dear WOCAT member

Greetings from the WOCAT Secretariat.

We are happy to inform you that the new WOCAT Global Database on Sustainable Land Management (SLM) will be launched on August 4th 2016. Adding of new SLM Practices (SLM Technologies and SLM Approaches) can be done in a new user-friendly system. The current WOCAT SLM Technologies/Approaches database will still be functional for editing existing Technologies/Approaches until September 2016. Afterwards the migration of the database to the new system will be done and the old database will be “read-only”.

We would like to encourage you to finalise ongoing data entry of SLM Technologies and Approaches until September 2016.

We will send you a reminder on August 4th to inform you about the new WOCAT Global Database on Sustainable Land Management (SLM) and the next steps.

Thank you and best regards

The WOCAT Secretariat
