In the margin of the second meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBI-2) of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) organized a side event entitled “The role of National Ecosystem Assessments (NEAs) in the post-2020 agenda: opportunities for policy impact” on 12 July 2018 in Montreal, Canada.
The event showcased the practical examples of the NEA works undertaken within BES-Net framework in four countries thus far, namely Cameroon, Colombia, Ethiopia and Viet Nam, and the anticipated impact the project will have at both the national and global level.

Land degradation affects us all directly or indirectly: food insecurity,
pests, reduced availability of clean water, increased vulnerability
to climate change, biodiversity loss, and much more.
However, policy often fails to acknowledge this problem or is

That’s why we offer this MOOC, to help understand how to
influence policymaking to foster sustainable soil protection and
Theoretical and methodological input by experts will help you to
clarify specific policy objectives, the preferred modes of communication
of your target group, and to identify the most suitable
engagement techniques or activities. You will have the opportunity
to exchange views and experiences with experts and
participants and work on the topic in an international network of
practitioners, scientists and policymakers.
