The Desertif'Actions 2022 dynamic is launched

January 26, 2022

Desertif'actions 2022 (D'A 22) aims to put agroecology at the heart of the agenda to combat desertification and land degradation. This unique event is a part of the Avaclim project, even if its scope goes beyond the project.

To carry out its mission, a whole D'A dynamic is being implemented, a dynamic that will extend throughout 2022 and to which Avaclim's partners will contribute.

It is a three-phase process, starting now with the organisation of national workshops. These national consultations, organised by Avaclim's partners in Brazil, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, India, Morocco, Senegal and South Africa, but also by other countries, will allow the preparation of a common advocacy of the international civil society, on the links between land, biodiversity and climate around agroecology.

The advocacy developed will be brought to the COP15 of the UNCCD in order to influence decision-making in favour of the implementation of agroecology.

The D'A22 process will end with an international civil society summit, allowing the various agroecology actors to meet and deepen their advocacy.

National workshops

CARI proposes that its partners and civil society organizations involved in sustainable land management and the promotion of agroecology consult and develop common positions in the run-up to the UNCCD COP15 in May 2022.

The national workshops will be held in the first quarter of 2022.

In order that the results of the country workshops can be shared and consolidated to develop a collective international argument, the CARI proposes a guide to facilitate with questions to be addressed in each workshop.

The main working themes

Eight work themes are proposed, related to the land-related issues that are the subject of political discussion in particular in the framework of the UNCCD.

CARI provides national advocacy workshop organizers with explanatory notes on each of the eight themes:
