Guide to the negotiations on the Combat Desertifcation – COP11

No12 -16 to 27 September 2013, Windhoek, Namibia

Sommaire

This eleventh session of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention to Combat Desertification (COP/CCD) forms part of the follow-up to the Declaration of Rio+20 which, in the section devoted to desertification, land degradation and drought (paras. 205-209), highlights the economic and social importance, for sustainable development, of good land and soil management in fighting poverty.

Part 1 of the Guide presents the Convention: its genesis, bodies, main provisions, its recent implementation strategy and its stakeholders. Part 2 continues by recalling the history of deliberations since its entry into force. Part 3 focuses on the issues of the eleventh session of the Conference of the Parties (COP11) and related meetings of the Committee for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC 12) and the Committee on Science and Technology (CST 11). Part 4 provides information on the negotiating framework and practical advice for the delegates to the UNCCD meetings.

We hope that this work will be useful to representatives of non-governmental and international organisations and the general public interested in international current affairs relating to desertification, land degradation and drought. IFDD would like to thank the UNISFERA drafting team and also the UNEP, which kindly financed the English version of the Guide and its « Summary for Policymakers ».
