UNCCD Launches Redesigned Website

2 March 2012: The Secretariat of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) has launched a redesigned website.

The redesigned site now organizes information about the UNCCD under the following menu options: about the Convention; key topics; regions; information; stakeholders; events and media; and official documents. The "key topics" includes links to webpages regarding: science, reporting review and assessment; awareness raising; thematic priorities; synergies among the Rio Conventions; and capacity building. The announcement regarding the redesigned site indicates that information previously available on the old is accessible from the new site. [UNCCD Website]
