General

Desertification, land degradation and drought (DLDD) are major drivers of global change, especially in drylands, where some of the most vulnerable ecosystems and peoples can be found. The Committee on Science and Technology (CST) of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) is a subsidiary body to provide advice on scientific and technological matters relating to DLDD. SDC has the lead function for UNCCD matters within the Federal Administration. SDC is supported by scientific expertise and as a consequence enabled to provide scientific evidence to the CST.
