In its General Assembly resolution (A/RES/62/195) of 19 December 2007, the United Nations declared the period 2010-2020 the “Decade for Deserts and the Fight against Desertification”. Almost eight years later on 23 October 2015 the Conference of the Parties for the Fight against Desertification (COP21) of Ankara concluded its work on a global agreement which calls for the restoration of degraded land, restrictions on the degradation of new  land and the protection of  biodiversity.  It  is  an  important  step  in  eliminating  the   age-old phenomenon of desertification.
