The Honourable Karina Gould, Minister of International Development, today issued the following statement: Today marks the anniversary of the 1994 adoption of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification.

Dryland ecosystems cover more than a third of the world’s land area and are often subject to inappropriate land use and overuse, as people strive to meet the immediate food, water and energy needs of their families.
