Implementing SDG target 15.3 on “Land Degradation Neutrality”

Development of an indicator based on land use changes and soil values


Given that land and soils are increasingly threatened by degradation, this project investigated how SDG target 15.3, which strives to achieve a land degradation neutral world by 2030, can be implemented. The report suggests necessary steps towards the implementation of Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) at the national level, gives an overview of land and soil degradation and existing monitoring schemes and policy processes relevant for the implementation of LDN in Europe, summarizes the ongoing process of conceptualizing and implementing LDN in Germany and finally, introduces an approach for a new indicator based on land use categories as a possible proxy indicator for LDN in Germany.
