2012 World Day to Combat Desertification
Athletes’ Park, Rio Conventions Pavilion
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
http://www.riopavilion.org/rio/ and http://www.unccd.int

This event brings together some of the world’s greatest minds drawn from the Ministerial to the community levels, from business to the scientific, practitioner and intergovernmental organizations to assess the feasibility of the sustainable development goal on land proposed for agreement at Rio + 20.
(See:http://www.unccd.int/Lists/SiteDocumentLibrary/Rio+20/UNCCD_PolicyBrief_ZeroNetLandDegradation.pdf).


The all-day event is themed, "Healthy soil sustains your life: LET’S GO LAND-DEGRADATION NEUTRAL" because without healthy soils and productive land, there is no sustainable development. There is no green economy and no secure future for most. Creating ‘The Future We Want’ starts with the commitments to preserve non-degraded land and soil and to balance out the degrading land with the recovery of an equal amount equal to that degraded every year.  It is a commitment to become land-degradation neutral.

During the evening reception, the winner and runners-up of the Land for Life Award, will be
announced by the reigning Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes, who is also the UNCCD Drylands Ambassador. The award, with a total prize fund of US$100,000, recognizes innovations from around the world that show tangible evidence of combating land degradation, but need scaling up.
