Land for Life "securing our common future"

Soil fertility and land management are defining issues in the 21st century as the consequences of land degradation are alarming. Mismanaged of land will lead to food insecurity, increasing poverty, water scarcity, increased of vulnerability towards climate change, and even turn into a security issue.

But, this is not a fate.

There are up to 2 billion hectares of land, equivalent to twice the size of China that could be restored and rehabilitated globally. Therefore, there is a need to attract attention that matches the importance of overall management of land at a global scale from individuals, private sector, media to decision-making circles.
The Land for Life programme through its two components: (1) Land for Life Award and (2) Awareness raising and knowledge support, aims to demonstrate that Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) is compelling and achievable. The programme will showcase and highlight how the existing local, national and regional efforts in rehabilitating land and their practices in managing land sustainably that have brought multiple benefits to communities.
We are now accepting nomination for potential candidates to be considered for 2017 Land for Life Award.

Nomination submission ends on 28 February 2017.
