Further comments on implementation of these Decisions and the associated programme of work

(372-374) Belgium can not apply this decision at the national level because it has no dry or sub-humid lands. Nevertheless, bilateral co-operation projects with Belgian input on some aspects related to this theme exist (see text box at the end of Art. 5 - Co-operation).

The development of synergies with other conventions, particularly the Convention to Combat Desertification as stipulated in the work programme, is under consideration. Possible financial contributions are currently under review.
