If you want to get a job done, you need the right tools: Next steps for the UN Convention to Combat Desertification

Many of the challenges that face the drylands are not addressed by the current CCD toolkit. Three principal areas where attention should now be focused are: working closely with the Convention on Climate Change to identify strategies to help the drylands adapt to climate change; engaging
with the changing aid architecture; and securing rights to land and natural resources for dryland populations.
