Message of Dr. Ahmed Djoghlaf, the Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, to the Participants in the First International Congress on Oasis and Sustainable Tourism, Elche, Spain, 14-16 December 2006.

I am very pleased to have an opportunity to commend the initiative of Spain, and the objectives of this event, to contribute to the preservation and promotion of the world’s oasis through the promotion of sustainable tourism. This congress comes towards the end of what the General Assembly of the United Nations declared the International Year of Deserts and Desertification (IYDD).
