Developing a Baseline Survey or Monitoring Biophysical and Socio-economic Trends in Drought

This document presents proposals for the design and implementation of a Baseline Survey for the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). It has been prepared at the request of the Secretariat of the UNCCD. The Baseline Survey is to be initiated as part of the UNCCD's Ten Year Strategic Plan, and will form the starting point for monitoring long-term trends in desertification so that progress in implementing the UNCCD can be evaluated.
