Scientific articles on LDN

WOCAT in joint collaboration with Conservation International, CONICET, Both ENDS, ISRIC, Sustainable Land Management Associates, CIAP and FAO, has contributed to four different papers that were submitted to a Special Issue of the Journal Environmental Science and Policy on Implementing Land Degradation Neutrality: from policy challenges to policy opportunities for national sustainable development.

The papers highlight the relevance of SLM for achieving LDN, the use of standardized global methods and tools and using their synergies for assessing and monitoring LDN, and the enabling conditions and environment to further the implementation of LDN.
