The UNCCD 10 Year Plan SO2: Lessons Learned in DESIRE.
Written by Erik van den Elsen   


ImageOne of the most important objectives of the UNCCD over the coming years is to improve the condition of ecosystems affected by desertification (Strategic Objective 2 - SO2). The goal is to improve and sustain agricultural productivity and the provision of ecosystem services, and so to sustain the livelihoods of some of the poorest communities in the world (expected impact 2.1), reduce the area affected by land degradation (indicator S-4) and increase net primary productivity in affected areas (indicator S-5).

The DESIRE project has been working almost 5 year to tackle these desertification problems. The document presented here describes valuable experiences and lessons learned from within the DESIRE project.
