The Drought Toolbox provides UNCCD stakeholders with easy access to tools, case studies, and other relevant resources to support action on drought preparedness with the aim of boosting the resilience of people and ecosystems to drought.

The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) Capacity Building Marketplace is an exchange platform for those seeking and offering knowledge, training and opportunities related to the UNCCD’s mandate regarding the issues of capacity building. These resources are helpful for anyone…

Stories, news and conversations about land, desertification, climate change, SDG's and environmental issues, featuring scientists, policymakers, stakeholders and SLM practitioners. - UNCCD’s podcast series on good land stewardship for present and future generations.

Three SPI Technical Reports are now available, provide refined guidance for implementation of LDN, and guidance to support the adoption of land-based interventions for drought management and mitigation.

The Global Land Outlook regional thematic reports demonstrate that informed and responsible decision-making can help develop policies that respond to commitments to better manage and restore land resources, including SDG and associated objectives such as land degradation neutrality (LDN).

Land degradation neutrality (LDN) aims to halt the ongoing loss of healthy land through degradation. LDN creates a target to manage land degradation, through a dual-pronged approach of measures to avoid or reduce degradation of land, combined with measures to reverse past degradation.

The UNCCD Knowledge Hub presents best practices in sustainable land management (SLM) technologies, including examples of best practices categorised by land use type and technology group. Policy makers, researchers, land users, and other stakeholders interested in land management can find practical…

Drought-smart land management characterizes land-based interventions for drought mitigation. Such D-SLM interventions improve the capacity of soil to accept, retain, release and transmit water and increase plant water use efficiency. They can do so broadly by increasing the water supply where it is…

Shaping an enabling environment for Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) calls for integrated land use planning, inclusive and environmentally sound land access, and governance, major reconfigurations of current institutional settings, financial backing, and ongoing dialogue between policy-makers…
