Workshop Report: CRIC 15 LDN TSP Pilot Countries
As follow-up to the decisions taken by the 12th session of the UNCCD Conference of Parties (COP 12), the UNCCD Secretariat and Global Mechanism, with support of international partners, launched the LDN Target Setting Programme (LDN TSP). Building on the LDN Pilot Project, the Programme aims at enabling country Parties to define national LDN baselines, set voluntary LDN targets and identify associated measures to achieve them.
Following the interest expressed by the 14 pilot countries to participate in the LDN TSP, a workshop for UNCCD National Focal Points from these countries was held in Nairobi, Kenya, on 15 October 2015. The workshop was organized by the Global Mechanism and the Secretariat of the UNCCD with support of other partners, and was held back to back with the 15th session of the Committee for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC 15).
