Get involved



We invite you and/ or your organization to become part of the global WOCAT Network. You may subscribe as an Individual Member or as an Organizational Member.

Why get involved?

WOCAT (World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies) is an established global network which supports innovation and decision-making processes in Sustainable Land Management (SLM).
The overall goal of the WOCAT Network is to unite the efforts in knowledge management and decision support for the scaling up of SLM among all stakeholders, including national governmental and non-governmental institutions and international and regional organizations and programmes. The Network provides tools that allow SLM specialists to identify fields and needs of action, and share their valuable knowledge in land management. This will assist them in their search for appropriate SLM technologies and approaches, support them in making decisions in the field and at the planning level, and help them scale up identified best practices.

As a member of the WOCAT Network you can access the WOCAT Database, launch joint projects in collaboration with WOCAT, and exchange your know-how with other WOCAT Members.
