It is now widely recognized that climate change, land degradation, and biodiversity are interconnected. Maintaining and restoring healthy ecosystems plays a key role in adapting to and mitigating climate change.

In 1992, the Earth Summit established three Rio Conventions: the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). The Rio Conventions Pavilion (RCP) is a platform for raising awareness and sharing information about the latest practices and scientific findings linking biodiversity, climate change, and sustainable land management.


The Rio Conventions, GEF and Partners are pleased to announce the Rio Conventions Pavilion programme at UNCCD COP14 in New Delhi, India. The programme runs from 3-13 September 2019. The full programme is available here
