UNCCD Call for Submissions: Images of Women-led Solutions to Desertification

The UNCCD will be holding its 15th Conference of Parties (COP 15) in May 2022, hosted by Cote d’Ivoire. The COP15 theme, ‘Land. Life. Legacy: From scarcity to prosperity’, is a call to action to ensure land, the lifeline on this planet, continues to benefit present and future generations.

UNCCD 2022 Call for Submissions: Images of Women-led Solutions to Desertification

COP15 will bring together leaders from governments, the private sector, civil society and other key stakeholders from around the world to drive progress in the future sustainable management of one of our most precious commodities: land.

The UNCCD emphasizes that both men and women must be active participants at all levels in programs to combat desertification and mitigate the effects of drought. Resolving gender inequalities is not only a matter of “righting a wrong” but also a significant opportunity to make use of women’s often under-recognized abilities, knowledge, talents, and leadership.
