About the UNCCD-PRAIS project
The DRFN is the Help Desk for all National Focal Points of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) in southern Africa, assisting them in their compulsory reporting to the UNCCD. This year the reporting is done via the Internet, through a portal referred to as the PRAIS Portal. This is a completely new concept, aimed at standardising the reporting, and ensuring that results are measured against well defined indicators.
The picture above was taken during a one week training workshop for National Focal Points for the UNCCD, held in Windhoek in June 2010.
