Global Policy Centre on Resilient Ecosystems and Desertification
The Nairobi-based Global Policy Centre on Resilient Ecosystems and Desertification (GC-RED) is one of UNDP’s six Global Policy Centres. Building on the work of the former Drylands Development Centre (DDC), GC-RED is responsible for advancing global thinking and knowledge sharing on inclusive and sustainable development in drylands and other fragile ecosystems. It works to explore solutions in two major areas:
- Sustainable management of renewable natural capital for optimal livelihoods support and jobs creation, with a particular focus on the poorest and most vulnerable communities; and
- Social and ecological resilience in drylands and other fragile ecosystems.
We combine critical policy analysis and institutional capacity building with concrete programmatic interventions on the ground. More >
