Two Australian Government programs Indigenous Protected Areas (IPA) and Indigenous Rangers collected the Bronze Future Policy Award (FPA) 2017: Desertification. The ceremony was held at the thirteenth session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) in Ordos, Inner Mongolia (China).

Affectionately known as the ‘Oscar for best policies’, the awards highlight worldwide policies that address land and soil degradation, risks to food security, and sustainable futures for current and future generations living from the land.

The FPA is awarded by the World Future Council (WFC) in cooperation with the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD).
