Land for Life award
The Land for Life Award was launched at the UNCCD COP10 in the Republic of Korea as part of the Changwon Initiative. This Award recognizes the excellence and innovation of individuals, groups, institutions and businesses whose work and initiatives have made a significant contribution towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 15: “Life on Land”, in particular Target 15.3 land degradation neutrality (LDN).
The Award program was revised in 2015, and winners are selected from the global community every two years. The Land for Life China Award will be also held in the same year and one winner will be chosen from China by the steering committee of Kubuqi International Desert Forum.
Though the award does not carry a monetary prize, winners will receive an individually tailored support package from the UNCCD secretariat to highlight her success story including:
- Networking with interested organizations
- Showcasing the award-winning sustainable land management (SLM) initiative at national and international events
- Acting as a land degradation neutrality (LDN) “spokesperson” in a high-level policy making atmosphere
