The 14th Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) will be held in New Delhi, India from September 2-13. Parties will decide on a new strategic framework that will guide action under the Convention from 2018-2030.

As a financial mechanism of the convention, the GEF will be represented by a delegation led by the CEO Naoko Ishii and will actively engage in discussions and events, presenting its report to the COP and its latest efforts in line with GEF-7 to tackle land degradation and desertification in an integrated, systemic approach.

The theme of the COP is “Towards a New Generation” with a focus on achieving Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) globally, in line with target 15.3 of the SDGs.
