The UN General Assembly held its 3rd Session for the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals last week in New York. Participants discussed a range of topics including food security and nutrition, sustainable agriculture, desertification, land degradation and drought, to progress the development of the sustainable development goals. Dr. Dennis Garrity, UNCCD Drylands Ambassador, addressed the Assembly on these matters and presented his ideas for a SDG on Land Regeneration and the opportunities EverGreen Agriculture provides in the achievement of such a goal.
