The UNCCD is the international Convention to Combat Desertification and it has been signed by nearly 200 member states of the United Nations. One of its main goals is to put an end to the loss of fertile land by 2030. Germany is one of the strongest supporters of the UNCCD. The Parties to the Convention meet regularly, similarly to the parties to the UN climate convention, in order to take decisions about the further implementation of the agreement.
