Best practices in Sustainable Land Management

Best practices in Sustainable Land Management

Since 1994, every year on June 17th the United Nations celebrate the role of land in producing food, tackling climate change, supporting ecosystem services and generating local employment, achieving sustainability, stability and security of areas affected by desertification and land degradation.

Join us to learn how the EU and its partners help tackle desertification and land degradation within the Great Green Wall Initiative, a symbol of hope in the face of some of the biggest challenges of our times – desertification, poverty and climate change.
