Sustainable Land Management and Climate Change Adaptation: Timely action to prevent, reduce and reverse land degradation can improve food and water security, contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation, and avoid conflicts and migration. In this regard, the initiative for land degradation neutrality promoted by the UNCCD should be highlighted. It is also worth noting the efforts of regional players committed to this struggle – ministries, economic sectors and NGOs to institutionalize the fight against land degradation, recover pre-Hispanic technologies and promote sustainable management.
