WOCAT related decisions at UNCCD COP15

The COP15 sustains WOCAT collaborative efforts in Sustainable Land Management towards Land Degradation Neutrality.

The 15th Conference of the Parties (COP15) of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) took place in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, from 9 to 20 May 2022. The theme was “Land. Life. Legacy: From scarcity to prosperity”. It is a call to act on major issues, such as drought, land restoration, land rights, gender equality and youth empowerment.

Five of the thirty-six decisions taken at COP15 highlight the role of WOCAT in supporting knowledge sharing, generating SLM good practices data and building capacity in collaboration with UNCCD and other partners.
