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 working toward land degradation neutrality (LDN).

The Capacity Building Marketplace supports students, grassroots movements, professionals, researchers, civil society organizations (CSOs), farmers’ organizations and the general public to develop their full potential regarding sustainable land management practices to address drought and land degradation.

The Marketplace addresses the creation, strengthening and building of capacity as it relates to mitigation and adaptation to drought and desertification in concrete ways.

Here on the Marketplace you can:

  • Share and find experiences and new ideas
  • Increase your knowledge and skills
  • Be informed about capacity building efforts globally
  • Directly influence the Marketplace’s future content
