An area half the size of the European Union is degraded every year. That’s more than 2 million square kilometers, mostly in Africa and Asia, where plant and animal life become untenable. To raise awareness and highlight preventing desertification and drought recovery, today is World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought (DDD).
Land degradation neutrality – is achievable through problem-solving, strong community involvement and co-operation at all levels.
The UN General Assembly proclaimed DDD in a resolution in 1995, the day after it drafted the UN Convention to Combat Desertification. It falls yearly on June 17.
