GEO LDN competition timeline

The winner of the Group on Earth Observation Land Degradation Neutrality (GEO-LDN) Competition will be announced at the award ceremony on 19 March, following the nineteenth session of the UNCCD’s Committee for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC 19). The virtual ceremony will take place on the CRIC’s platform and broadcasted live in the UN Web TV Channel.

The GEO-LDN Competition is an international technology innovation contest to design and build a tool that will support more transparent and well-informed land use decisions from the local to national level. The winning solution will be promoted by the GEO-LDN Initiative and the UNCCD for use by all countries committed to setting voluntary LDN targets. The winning team will receive financial and technical support estimated at USD 100,000 for the transformation of the prototype into an operational and scalable tool, and a two-year license to use Google Earth Engine (GEE) as part of their solution. More info here...
