Response to the review of the UN Desertification Convention Secretariat

In a candid reply to an official review of the UN Convention Secretariat's work, the organisation's head Hama Arba Diallo acknowledges that if problems are not rectified, they could threaten the convention's existence. In response to the review, member states have set up a working group to explore how to implement the review's 25 recommendations. Also on the working group's agenda is to begin thinking about a 10-year plan for the convention.
