VGGT and the UN Convention to Combat Desertification into the implementation of the Convention.

Tuesday, 12 May 2020 at 11.00-12.30


Jointly hosted by FAO and FIG

The session will be held as a series of presentations and floor discussion focusing on how land administration and land management (based on the VGGT) can help address land degradation, soil erosion and desertification through showcasing existing available practices and case studies. By presenting some experiences, there will be the opportunity to show case and then to explore how university research and continuous professional development courses can strengthen the role of surveyors for enhanced application of the VGGT.
