Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) is a powerful vision for the future (UN SDG 15.3). It refers to a state where the global net amount of healthy and productive land remains stable (or increases). Achieving LDN is instrumental to meeting many other SDGs, including climate action.
The Land Degradation Neutrality Fund, co-promoted by the UNCCD, is a first-of-its-kind fund investing in profit-generating sustainable land management and land restoration projects that contribute to SDG 15.3. The technical assistance facility (TAF) for LDN is currently being set up by IDH, the Sustainable Trade Initiative, in parallel with the LDN Fund, which is being developed by responsible investment specialist Mirova.
