Call to submit drought relevant information

In September 2019, at the 14th Conference of Parties (COP) of the UNCCD, Parties decided to establish an intergovernmental working group (IWG), on effective policy and implementation measures for addressing drought under the UNCCD.

The COP also invited Parties, international organizations, and stakeholders to make submissions on: (a) Policy, implementation and institutional coordination frameworks and implementation measures for addressing drought under the Convention: and (b) Barriers, challenges, opportunities and implementation measures in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from drought.

Further the COP requested the UNCCD secretariat to create an inventory of existing drought-related tools, with the aim to share this information with all Parties.
