The UNCCD eLibrary in Bonn, Germany assumes the role of the depository of material dealing with aspects of combating desertification and land degradation, including historic collections and scientific data related to best practices and actions that are focused on the restoration of degraded lands.
The collection offers books, reports, periodicals, articles, and audio-visual materials. Its archive houses national reports and national action programme documents, sound recordings of official sessions of the Conference of the Parties (COP), Committee for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC), Ad Hoc Working Group (AHWG), Committee on Science and Technology (CST), Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee on Desertification (INCD) and regional meetings.
The library continues to build-up a large collection of monographs, technical reports, and journals related to desertification. You can find more about the library here.
