Do you know 135,000,000 people may be displaced by 2045 as a result of desertification?

The 2017 World Day to Combat Desertification  #2017WDCD is the Day to remind everyone of the importance of healthy and productive land to provide sustainability, stability and security of desertification-affected places.

There are 500,000,000 hectares of land can be restored. The #2017WDCD campaign call upon all to restore degraded lands to create jobs, boost incomes and food security. 

Your support and actions of restoring degraded lands will turn the growing sense of hopelessness into communities and nations that are stable, secure and sustainable in future. 

Let's halt the vicious cycle of degrade-abandon-migrate to a virtual cycle of protect-sustain-restore.

                              The Land is our Home, our Future!
