In addition to hearing statements from the Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea, ministers and other dignitaries, and video messages from the UN Secretary-General and the Prince of Wales, the High-level Segment was organized into two roundtables, which focused on “Desertification, land degradation and drought and food security: Preserving the resource base for our food security” and “The UNCCD in the context of the Rio+20: Addressing desertification, land degradation and drought as a cornerstone of the Green Economy.” Events at the Rio Conventions Pavilion focused on the theme “Gender and the Rio Conventions.” Side events, the Sustainable Land Management Business Forum, and contact groups also took place during the day.
