French Scientific Committee on Desertification The creation in 1997 of the French Scientific Committee on Desertification (CSFD) has met two concerns of the Ministries in charge of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. First, CSFD materialises the will to involve the French scientific community versed in desertification, land degradation, and development of arid, semi-arid and sub-humid areas, in generating knowledge as well as guiding and advising the policy makers and actors associated in this combat. Its other aim is to strengthen the position of this French community within the international context. In order to meet such expectations, CSFD is meant to be a driving force regarding analysis and assessment, prediction and monitoring, information and promotion. Within French delegations, CSFD also takes part in the various statutory meetings of the organs of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification: Conference of the Parties (CoP), Committee on Science and Technology (CST), Committee for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention. It also participates in meetings of European and international scope. CSFD includes a score of members and a President, who are appointed intuitu personae by the Ministry for Higher Education and Research, and come from various specialities of the main relevant institutions and universities. CSFD is managed and hosted by the Agropolis International Association that gathers, in the French town of Montpellier and Languedoc-Roussillon region, a large scientific community specialised in agriculture, food and environment of tropical and Mediterranean countries. The Committee acts as an independent advisory organ; it has neither decision-making powers nor legal status. Its operating budget is financed by subsidies from the French Ministries of Foreign and European Affairs and for Ecology and Sustainable Planning and Development. CSFD members participate voluntarily to its activities, as a contribution from the Ministry for Higher Education and Research. More about CSFD:
