Conference on combating desertification
Valladolid, Spain

The final international conference of the Spanish LIFE project, The Green Deserts (LIFE09 ENV/ES/447), will be held at the University of Valladolid on 17-18 June 2015. The event is being organised alongside the UN’s World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought.

The first day of the conference will cover three themes:

The Green Deserts project, the World Day to Combat Desertification and cooperation among projects. The UN established the World Day to raise public awareness of the issue of desertification and to promote implementation of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) in those countries experiencing serious drought and desertification.
