"Our land makes our climate"
International cartoons contest of Desertif-Actions 2015
Article 1 : participants
The international contest of cartoons "our land makes our climate" is the initiative of the organizers of
Desertif-Actions Forum 2015 and open to any professional or amateur artist from any country who has
published at least one drawing in the press between 2012 and 2015 . Each artist may submit only two
black and white or color drawings.
Article 2: Theme
The theme of the international cartoons contest is "our land makes our climate". It aims at
illustrating the role and contribution of land and soil in the functioning of the global ecosystem,
climate regulation, food safety, biodiversity and preservation of life ; and more generally in sustaining
lifestyles and wellbeing of human population.
Land has poorly been considered at the beginning of the climate change negotiations whereas it is
part of the solution via its unique carbon storage capacity. A new focus on soils is emerging as land is
coveted trough large scale grabbing, and that the water contained in the soils is exposed to
unsustainable use and exploitation; in addition inappropriate farming and urban practices are limiting
the potential for the land to contribute to life and biodiversity while generating local and large scale
ecological instability and social insecurity. While known solutions do exist.
