New Delhi, Sept. 13 -- The Delhi Declaration which will be presented on September 13, at the end of the 14th Conference of Parties (COP) to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) will likely recommend the merging of all three Rio Conventions-the convention on biological diversity, the United Nations framework on climate change, and UNCCD- be integrated for better policy-making.

With days to go for the closing of the summit, 197 countries are hard at work, behind closed doors on the Delhi Declaration which will summarise the intent of the world on how it plans to manage its land resources.

The draft is still being negotiated. The three conventions were formed following the Earth Summit in Rio de Janerio in 1992.
