  • Inviting Feedback on NAP Alignment Report

    The United Nations Convention to Combat Land Degradation (UNCCD) stipulates that the National Action Programs (NAP) to combat land degradation developed by the member countries need to be realigned to the UNCCD 10-Year Strategy (2008-2018). Therefore, the National Soil Services Centre (NSSC) as the Country’s Focal Agency for UNCCD, carried out the task of realigning the Country’s NAP developed in 2010.

    The NAP was developed through extensive consultation with relevant stakeholders at all levels and the same procedure was followed in aligning it to the UNCCD 10 year strategy. With completion of the NAP Alignment exercise, the final draft NAP report is now being shared online for all  stakeholders within and outside the Ministry of Agriculture & Forests for feedback before the report is finalized and submitted to UNCCD.
