France renews its strategic document to combat land degradation and desertification
This document will be officially presented during a webinar organized on 15th of December
Given the importance of desertification issues for both the environment and social and economic development, France is adapting its strategic framework to combat desertification and land degradation worldwide for the period 2020-2030.
This new strategic framework supports the following goals:
- Contributing to France’s development policy to combat global inequalities and preserve global public goods, addressing the root causes of mutually reinforcing crises which affect all continents;
- Guiding ministries, agencies, NGOs and scientists, as well as other French actors, in their support to the most vulnerable populations seeking to
prevent degradation of land and manage it as sustainably as possible.
