  • UNU-INWEH and the economics of land degradation
    Together with a consortium of partners, UNU-INWEH is undertaking a study that would align the economics of land degradation into national policy strategies, particularly those around green economy. UNU-INWEH has been actively involved in stimulating a global study on the economics of land degradation starting with a position paper delivered at the UNCCD COP9 in Buenos Aires 2009. In this paper, UNU- INWEH proposed the establishment of a land degradation equivalent of Stern report on climate change. By mainstreaming the issue INWEH aims to contribute to poverty alleviation and the promotion of sustainable land and water management.
