Call for Content: The Women of the World and the UNCCD

The Women of the World and the UNCCD

This is a Call for Content by the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification - Capacity Development and Innovations Office (UNCCD-CDIO) for people to show the world the voices of the women.

It is part of a new project being developed by the CDIO called “Women and the UNCCD Through The Years". The UNCCD Secretariat invites women of the world to be part of the project, which  aims inter alia to tell the stories of women’s tremendous contributions to the successful implementation of the Convention thus far. Whether you work on a farm, in a village, in a school, at the sub-regional, regional or international levels to help promote the message and implement the actions to support Sustainable Land Management. You have a story to tell, and lessons to teach. The world is waiting to hear and to learn from you!
