Expert Profile Search

The Roster of Independent Experts (RoIE) as part of the UNCCD Knowledge Hub provides access to local experts on desertification, land degradation and drought and sustainable land management practices via an online database. The database of experts is provided by the Secretariat as a convenient service for country Parties and stakeholders. Its purpose is to share reliable information in a user-friendly way and bridge the gaps between research, policy and practice.

Experts on the roster are nominated by country Parties, through the national focal point.  Individual experts’ contact details can be found in the RoIE database by searching by name, discipline nominated (post COP 11 discipline normalization), nominating country, or geographical area of expertise.

Please note that the database of experts is provided by the Secretariat as a convenient service for country Parties and stakeholders. Detailed information of the experts is presented as provided by the individual experts to the Secretariat, through the national focal points.
