The GGWSSI Platform is designed to support decision-makers, development partners, scientists, and local communities to share knowledge, upscale best practices and stimulate dialogue on how to combat the effects of climate change and desertification and boost investments in the region.


By integrating information from a pool of existing knowledge management platforms and gathering knowledge and experiences to benefit the GGWSSI community, the Platform serves as:



  1. A collaborative tool: with the option to initiate discussion groups on key issues related to natural resource management in the Sahara and Sahel, as well as blog pieces
  2. An editorial space: containing articles, publications, latest news and events, photos and videos from the initiative
  3. An umbrella platform: centralizing key information on the GGWSSI from related platforms and partner websites.
