What is WOCAT?
WOCAT is a global network of specialists contributing to SLM by sharing and evaluating knowledge. The overall goal of the WOCAT Network is to unite the efforts in knowledge management and decision support for up-scaling SLM among all stakeholders including national governmental and non-governmental institutions and international and regional organizations and programs. The network provides tools and methods that allow SLM specialists to identify fields and needs of action and share their knowledge in land management to contribute to the achievement of SDGs at different levels.
