Checklist for Land Degradation Neutrality Transformative Projects and Programmes

This draft checklist is a tool prepared to help country-level project developers and their technical and financial partners to design effective Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) Transformative Projects and Programmes. The checklist is optional, not prescriptive. It provides a pragmatic and scientifically grounded guide that encourages innovation. It aims to ensure consistency and completeness in the implementation of LDN, and to lead to a positive transformation.

Usage of the checklist will ensure that the fundamental features of LDN are given full consideration. Further refinement of the checklist through feedback during field testing, will allow it to become a living document that evolves, based on lessons learned through its use.

The checklist has been developed by the Global Mechanism of the UNCCD in collaboration with the UNCCD secretariat; Experts serving on the Science-Policy Interface (SPI) of the UNCCD have conducted a scientific review.
