Land under pressure – Health under stress

This working paper calls for urgent actions to protect human health and wellbeing. Lack of awareness of land degradation and its drivers and impacts can become a barrier to action. Raising knowledge and awareness of the driving forces and consequences in the social, economic and environmental dimensions is crucial, and should be implemented at every level. Actions across jurisdictions and sectors are needed at every stage of the pathways from land degradation drivers, their exposures and their human health impacts.
