Mission Statement

The mission of UNU-LRT is to train specialists from developing countries to combat land degradation and restore degraded land, and to assist strengthening institutional capacity and gender equality in the field of land restoration and sustainable land management in developing countries.

The main concern of UNU-LRT is land degradation, soil erosion, unsustainable land use and desertification. Efforts to combat these problems are often hampered by lack of knowledge, capacity and social motivation in the affected areas. The programme assists people from developing countries to break down these barriers to effective management of natural resources, emphasising women's empowerment in all steps of that advancement.
