  3. 3. 5th Plenary meeting, China, October 2010 1. UNCCD reporting process • Letters to SST and NFP have had different impacts yet but have started a relationship • In some rare cases the NFP was just changed or did not respond • In many cases the contact was welcome but the new webbased format was not yet well known and did not allow further contribution • In some cases more direct exchange was established by phone or letter • In some cases there was a real contribution from DESIRE to the national report process ( still ongoing), and mutual participation in workshops or national committee • As a conclusion : the contact should be kept on long term, there is an opportunity to interact if the deadline is postponed (mid november ?) .

  9. 9. 5th Plenary meeting, China, October 2010 Some comments… • The issues mentioned are very different according to SS but are all more or less related to processes rather than techniques • Most of them are not strictly based on the scientific results or findings but on the lessons learned in practice during the DESIRE process • DESIRE seems to have built more legitimacy in the SS for expressing a wider point of vue on local SLM • The economic aspects cannot be avoided and are directly or indirectly adressed
