Statement

Message from the Executive Secretary Ahmed Djoghlaf on the Occasion of World Day to Combat Desertification, 17 June 2007.

Dry and sub-humid lands represent a unique repository of biodiversity, culture and traditional knowledge. Home to two billion people, many of whom rely on biodiversity resources for their daily lives, dry and sub-humid lands contain extraordinarily high levels of endemism and are the origin of many of the world’s food crops, livestock and varietal diversity.
