SPI Technical Reports
The Science-Policy Interface (SPI) of the UNCCD published three technical reports, in line with their 2018-2019 Workplan.
SPI Objective 1.1
SPI Objective 1.2
SPI Objective 2
The SPI works to translate current science into policy options that are relevant to the 197 Parties of the Convention resulting from assessment and synthesis of current science. In October 2017, the UNCCD Conference of the Parties (COP) requested that the SPI produce these reports as part of their work programme. The key messages of these reports ensure a strong scientific foundation to the policy decisions taken at COP 14 (2-13 September 2019, New Delhi).
