LDN Transformative Projects and Programmes
Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) seeks to keep healthy and productive land in balance. It represents a major opportunity to contribute to the “paradigm shift for sustainable development” by scaling up good practices and pilot activities through large-scale transformative projects and programmes (TPPs). These initiatives are capable of generating multiple benefits, allowing positive changes in human well-being, poverty alleviation and the restoration of terrestrial ecosystems and their services.
Building on the momentum created by the LDN Target Setting Programme, the Global Mechanism of the UNCCD is assisting countries committed to achieving LDN in the development of Transformative Projects and Programmes to achieve LDN in close cooperation with implementing partners, by providing tailored support in the early stages of project preparation, which will be further developed into complete project proposals.
