The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) 3rd international scientific conference on “combating desertification, land degradation and drought for poverty reduction and sustainable development – the contribution of science, technology, traditional knowledge and practices” will be held from 9 to 12 March 2015 in Cancun (Mexico).
