UNCCD recognition



In early 2014, WOCAT’s growth and ongoing improvement culminated in official recognition by the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) as the primary recommended database for SLM best practices and adaptation measures. The UNCCD recognition gives WOCAT the mandate to support the 196 signatory countries in recording their SLM best practices and using the SLM knowledge of stakeholders worldwide – from land users to decision-makers – to improve local land management.
