Desertification and Drought Day
June 17, 2022
Desertification and Drought Day is one of the few Holidays in Droughtland, along with “Rain Day”, so its citizens are eager to celebrate it together with Spain, the host country for this year’s UN Desertification and Drought Day activities. The theme this year is “Rising Up From Drought Together”, which will focus on drought resilience and proactive actions to take so no land becomes like Droughtland.
