Combatting land degradation: securing a sustainable future

This report articulates UNDP's response to the global land degradation challenge, guided by the strategic vision and approach outlined in our Strategic Plan (2018-2021). It highlights UNDP's support to the implementation of the UNCCD 2018-2030 Strategic Framework through: a) The provision of capacity building and policy solutions to land degradation challenges; and b) Supporting countries to design practical interventions in degraded landscapes to pilot and upscale technologies and approaches to avoid, reduce and reverse land degradation. This support is designed to help countries achieve the vision and strategic objectives of the Framework, and help them meet their Land Degradation Neutrality (SDG 15.3) targets by 2030.
