The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification defines desertification as “the process of land degradation resulting from factors such as climate change or human activities”.
The territory of the Murcia Region, one of the warmest and driest semi-arid regions in Europe, is a clear example. As Spain was the venue on 17 June of the Day of Desertification and Drought 2022 within the framework of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification can be a great opportunity to hold a meeting in Murcia with representatives of regions equally vulnerable to desertification.
The idea of this event is twofold:
• To share our challenges and reflect on possible actions and strategies for the sustainable management and use of resources in the fight against desertification and land degradation, as the LIFE proyect AMDRYC4.
• We believe that the conclusions of this event can be an added-value contribution to the current work related to the Carbon Farming and the “Fit to 55” package.
We would like to lay the foundations for structured collaboration between European regions that face the same challenges and we can and must work together, to work for effective joint solutions.
