Message of Dr. Ahmed Djoghlaf, Executive Secretary to the Convention on Biological Diversity, on the Occasion of World Day to combat desertification, 17 June, 2006

This year’s celebration of the World Day to Combat Desertification is of special significance as it coincides with the celebration of the International Year on Deserts and Desertification. The theme chosen for this years’ celebration—the beauty of deserts, the challenge of desertification—is welcomed by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, which has recently celebrated International Biodiversity Day on the same theme in recognition of desert life and the serious threats it faces. <br><br><table width=120> <tr><b>Other languages:</b></tr> <tr><td>French </td><td><a href="/doc/speech/2006/sp-2006-06-16-desert-fr.pdf"><img src='/images/ico-fmt-pdf.gif' border='0' width='20' height='22'></a><a href="/doc/speech/2006/sp-2006-06-16-desert-fr.doc"><img src='/images/ico-fmt-doc.gif' border='0' width='20' height='22'></a></td></tr> <tr><td>Spanish </td><td><a href="/doc/speech/2006/sp-2006-06-16-desert-es.pdf"><img src='/images/ico-fmt-pdf.gif' border='0' width='20' height='22'></a><a href="/doc/speech/2006/sp-2006-06-16-desert-es.doc"><img src='/images/ico-fmt-doc.gif' border='0' width='20' height='22'></a></td></tr> </table>
