Ecosystem Management


As a partner to the Convention since 2011, IUCN supports progress towards policies and programmes that deliver Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) through the application of nature-based solutions (NbS) – actions to protect, sustainably manage and restore ecosystems to address societal challenges.

In 2017, a delegation of eight experts, led by Ms. Cyriaque Sendashonga - Global Director Programme and Policy, represented IUCN at the thirteen session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD COP13) held in Ordos, China from 6 to 16 September.
