Roster of Independent Experts (RoIE)
The UNCCD Secretariat maintains a Roster of Independent Experts (RoIE), based on nominations by Country Parties. The RoIE’s purpose is to facilitate access to information and expertise in a variety of fields related to the work of the Convention. Further, Parties to the Convention are invited to “involve the experts on the roster in local, national, regional and global activities related to the implementation of the Convention, including in the validation of best practices” and to “involve experts in the promotion of relationships and networks with the scientific community at local, national, regional and global level, with the support of national focal points” (Decision 26/COP.11).
If you would like to be added to the RoIE, we advise you to contact your National Focal Point, and fill out the Expert Information Form. Please submit the form to your National Focal Point, along with your resume and a cover letter outlining why you would be an asset to the RoIE and how you can contribute to the UNCCD community of experts.
