The global impacts of desertification and land degradation prompted the United Nations Organization to adopt the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (CCD) in 1994. Niue acceded to the UNCCD on 12 August 1998 and entered into force on 10 November 1998. Under the CCD all parties to the Convention are expected to prepare and implement a National Action Programme (NAP). The action plan formulated and information presented are largely drawn from previous environmental reports and recommendations, which relate to land degradation and/or drought mitigation measures.
