On the theme “Land and Human Security”, the 2017 Award aims to identify and honour individuals or organizations that showcase effective and creative sustainable land management approaches. These approaches should contribute to stability and security for communities who have suffered from the impacts of land degradation and desertification. In particular, they should be helping communities at risk or forced to abandon their homes due to insecurity deriving from environmental degradation
The UNCCD Secretariat has the pleasure to invite qualified nominators to propose outstanding candidates that demonstrate qualities and results that have been contributing to achieve Land Degradation Neutrality goal at national or international level following the selection criteria. We are in particular interested in the potential nominees who have been contributing significantly to solve or reduce the issue on of forced migration due to environmental degradation.
