The High-Level Segment continued on Tuesday morning, with ministers concluding the second round table on overcoming hurdles of scaling up and disseminating good practices, and the third round table on economics of DLDD. In the afternoon, a final interactive dialogue took place on “Capitalizing on achievements and enhancing the implementation of the UNCCD and the Strategy at country and regional levels.” Negotiations on draft decisions continued in three contact groups on programme and budget, non-budgetary matters, and CRIC-related matters.

During an afternoon press conference, the UNCCD Executive Secretary, Syngenta and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), launched a joint initiative, the Soil Leadership Academy.

Other meetings held concurrently with the COP included the second and final day of the SLM-Business Forum and a side event titled: “SLM Pays off: ELD Initiative - first results for decision makers.” The Rio Conventions Pavilion convened the Landscape Approach Day.
