Land Degradation Neutrality: The Target Setting Programme

In this brochure, we set out the case for the full implementation of goal 15 “Life on Land”. In particular, we highlight how UNCCD Parties are working together to achieve target 15.3 on land degradation neutrality (LDN). At this stage, we are losing around 12 million hectares of land each year. We need to stop this critical loss and turn this trend around. Literally speaking, the health and…
