A call to action to guarantee that land, the lifeblood on our planet, will benefit both current and future generations is the COP15 theme, ‘Land. Life. Legacy: From scarcity to prosperity.’ During COP15, global leaders from the public, business, and civic sectors, as well as other important stakeholders, will convene in order to advance sustainable land management, one of our most valuable resources.

The UNCCD Secretariat is on the lookout for innovative practices that illustrate how women can lead and innovate in the face of environmental deterioration, desertification, and drought.


For COP15 in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire, a photo show of the accepted contributions will be on display.

Photos taken during COP15 will be handed over to the host country’s government for public exhibition when the conference is completed.
