SDG 15: Life on Land

United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 15 aims to protect, restore, and promote the conservation and sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and biodiversity loss. Land degradation is a major threat to sustainable development, as it can lead to food insecurity, water scarcity, climate change, and the loss of biodiversity. SDG 15 calls for action to protect and restore land ecosystems, to sustainably manage forests and halt desertification.
