Projects & programmes
Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) seeks to keep land as healthy and productive as possible.
It represents a major opportunity to contribute to 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, including 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 UNCCD’s Global Mechanism is assisting countries with the development of Transformative Projects and Programmes to achieve LDN. The Global Mechanism provides tailored support in the early stages of project preparation, which can be further developed into complete project proposals.
