Overview of LDN Targets

National voluntary LDN targets (original language)

Trinidad and Tobago commits to the following national target: 

“LDN is achieved by 2030 with no net loss for the whole land area of the country and all its land cover classes, compared to the 2000-2015 baseline.” 

The following sub-targets are elaborated to contribute to the national target: 

  • Rehabilitate 100 ha of spent quarry lands through community-based agroforestry 
  • Rehabilitate 100 ha of degraded forest and increase forest carbon stock by 5 per cent by 2030 
  • Improve productivity and soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks in 500 ha of cropland by 2030, compared to the 2015 baseline
  • Improve national data and develop a mechanism for the collection and management of land productivity, land cover and SOCdata for future monitoring needs
  • Increase local, sectoral and national awareness of SSM/SLM and LDN in support of addressing the drivers of land degradation
