The UNCCD 3rd Scientific  Conference,  held  from  9  to  12  March  2015  in  Cancún,  Mexico,  used  a novel,  participatory  approach  to  explore  the  various  forms  of  knowledge  that  link  biophysical  and  social systems,   the   vulnerabilities   of   these   systems   and   potential   pathways   to   reach   sustainable   land management. The conference gathered nearly 300 articipants from 90 countries, half of them from the scientific community, and the other half from ministries, government agencies, international organizations and  civil  society  organizations.  This  document  highlights  the  key  issues  raised  by  the  conference Impulse Report and discussed by the participants, to come up with specific scientific and operational proposals to achieve impact.
