World Day to Combat Desertification 2015
Posted on 15 June 2015

Every year on 17th June, World Day to Combat Desertification is observed.

All countries use land for food and water. Make sure your country celebrates the by sharing the message that we need to preserve and improve its fruitfulness.

2015's slogan is ‘No such thing as a free lunch. Invest in healthy soil’, and the day offers opportunity to consider and take action on changing our land use practices through smart agriculture, protecting farmers and more investments in sustainable land practices.

The day will feature a global observance event in Milan, Italy, during the 2015 UN Expo, as well as National and local observances.
