The World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought is observed every June 17 of each year by the UNCCD, to promote public awareness on the desertification, drought and land degradation issues and on international efforts to mitigate and combat this blight. The “Food. Feed. Fibre” topic, chosen for 2020, is an opportunity to remind everyone that land degradation neutrality (LDN) is achievable through strong community involvement and cooperation at all levels.
