Business recognizes that the world needs to build a future that avoids, minimizes, and reverses desertification and land degradation and mitigates the effects of drought. This is essential for the resilience and success of our societies, and for the businesses that operate within them.
To do this, we need unprecedented collaboration between all stakeholders, including business, governments and society, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
At the UNCCD COP14, businesses have come together with key stakeholders to emphasize their critical role, and to commit to action towards a land-degradation neutral world. See the full declaration here.
