Item #d94nov202

The International Convention to Combat Desertification was signed by about 100 countries during an October 14-15 ceremony in Paris. Negotiated in June (GCCD, p. 16, July), the treaty emphasizes projects at the local level to be financed by developed countries, although such funding may be a diversion of current foreign aid rather than additional support. The United Nations considers desertification a significant potential component of climate change. (See Intl. Environ. Rptr., pp. 841-842, Oct. 19; Global Environ. Change Rep., pp. 3-4, Oct. 28. The book section in this issue of GCCD contains a subsection on desertification.)
