sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss

We need good, accurate data on land use and impact of this usage to be able to combat the destruction of fragile ecosystems. We need to be able to understand the true cost of human actions and use this data to reverse the effects of overuse of land. Mountains and coasts are also under threat because land there is being exploited—causing droughts and floods which in turn lead to food and water shortages.




"We owe it to ourselves and to the next generation to conserve the environment so that we can bequeath our children a sustainable world that benefits all."
