Desertification: a visual synthesis

Source(s):  United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD)
Zoï Environment Network (Zoï)

This book is intended to be used as a basic information kit that tells "the story" of desertification, land degradation and drought at the global scale, together with a comprehensive set of graphics. It indicates trends as they have taken place over the last decades, combining and connecting issues, and present priorities.

It also provides information on the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and how it works to forge a global partnership to reverse and prevent desertification/land degradation and to mitigate the effects of drought in affected areas in order to support poverty reduction and environmental sustainability.
