World Day to Combat Desertification & Drought

World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought, 17 June, was proclaimed by the General Assembly in 1994 (resolution 49/115). On that date, the same year, the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification was adopted.

States were invited to devote the World Day to promoting awareness of the need for international cooperation to combat desertification and the effects of drought, and on the implementation of the Convention to Combat Desertification.

In 2014 the day will highlight the benefits of mainstreaming sustainable land management policies and practices into our collective response to climate change. The theme for this year is ‘’ Ecosystem-based adaptation’’ and the slogan is "Land belongs to the future – lets climate proof it’’. It aims to promote community and ecosystem resilience while improving the human condition particularly in dry lands. The decade 2010 – 2020 has been declared the United Nations Decade for Deserts and the Fight against Desertification (UNDDD).
