With the establishment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, it has become essential to share real-world examples of best policy and practices, and discuss how these may develop further as we come to terms with a changing and more turbulent world. A Better World: Volume 4, published in September 2018, covers Goal 15: Life on Land, and particularly Goal 15.3, which aims to achieve Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) globally by 2030.

Goal 15 and the significance of LDN targets have opened a window of opportunity for many countries to strengthen their policies for sustainable use of land and soils. This publication outlines the concept, the main elements and the current international framework for assessing the progress towards SDG target 15.3. It proposes a stepwise approach to further tailor national requirements with the overall goal of LDN implementation. The book discusses the progress and challenges in this essential topic, highlighting good practices in a wide variety of societies and disciplines.
