AND GLCN SIDE EVENT AT UNCCD-CRIC-3
The GTOS and
the GLCN Secretariats have the pleasure to announce that they will
co-host an official side-event at the 3rd session of the Committee
for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC-3)
of the United Nation Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD)
in Bonn, Germany.
“GTOS and GLCN: how can we help in reporting from your country?”
will take place in the meeting room adjacent to the Restaurant at
the International Congress Centre Bundeshaus from 13:00 to 14:00
on 5 May 2005. This will be an opportunity for the international
community to have an overview on GTOS and GLCN (including Africover)
products and services which can be utilised by the UNCCD Parties
in order to report to, as well as to comply with, the Convention.
The agenda of
the side-event also includes an overview of different perspectives
regarding the role of GTOS and GLCN in assisting Parties within
the domain of terrestrial observations to further understand mechanisms
of land degradation and desertification. In particular, the perspective
of one of the co-sponsoring organisations (UNEP) as well as that
of a donor country (Italy) will be presented together with the point
of view of the scientific community.
material on GTOS and GLCN will be available for the participants
and the GTOS and GLCN Staff will be available to answer more specific
queries after the presentations. Please note that the working language
of the side-event will be English.
