Overview of LDN Targets

National voluntary LDN targets (original language)

National priorities, with different target year, to be considered in national plans and programmes dealing with land issues*:
• Improve understanding of ongoing land degradation processes and validation of Land Productivity Dynamics monitoring by 2017.
• Identification of targets and action/measures in pilot areas with stakeholders by 2018.
• Implementation of measures in pilot areas by 2020.
• Improve awareness of land degradation causes and impacts among policy makers at national and local level by 2020.
• Mitigation of pressures on 12,200 sq km of degrading forest areas with SLM measures by 2030.
• Mitigation of pressures on degrading agricultural areas with SLM measures by 2030.

LDN targets at the national scale* 
• Rehabilitation measures on 200 km2 of dryland forests by 2030.
• Rehabilitation measures on 12,000 km2 of non-dryland forests by 2030.
• Rehabilitation measures on 50 km2 of shrubs, grasslands and sparsely vegetation in drylands by 2030.
• Rehabilitation measures on 1,000 km2 of shrubs, grasslands and sparsely vegetation in non-drylands by 2030.
• Rehabilitation and SLM measures, including legislative framework, capacity building and economic measures, on 1,000 km2 of cropland in drylands by 2030.
• Rehabilitation and SLM measures, including legislative framework, capacity building and economic measures, on 10,000 km2 of cropland in non-drylands by 2030.
• Zero urban areas growth by 2050, in line with the EU target.

* National priorities and LDN targets should be considered as preliminary scientific results. The process for their update and validation is currently ongoing.
