With a session of the Global Biodiversity Forum and the launching of two IUCN publications, the Union further promoted the application of the ecosystem approach at Sixth Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), in La Habana, Cuba. IUCN Environmental Law Centre represented by Ms Tomme Young and Dr Alejandro Iza, provided technical legal support to the IUCN delegation. Dr Iza highlighted the necessity to adopt new or strengthen existing legal frameworks in areas such as water resources, soil degradation and land uses. IUCN renewed its intention to contribute as a strategic partner to the implementation of the UNCCD.
