2020 World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought to focus on links between consumption and land


Each year on 17th June the United Nations holds a World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought. This year the event will focus on how production and consumption affect the condition of land. The growing demand for land to produce food, feed and fibre is a leading driver of desertification and land degradation.
