SDGs: Indicator 15.2.1 | Land Portal | Securing Land Rights Through Open Data

The SDG indicator 15.2.1 measures the progresses towards sustainable forest mangement.

This indicator is under "Goal 15: Life on Land" of the SDGs and it refers to Target 15.2, which focuses on sustainable management of forests:

By 2020, promote the implementation of sustainable management of all types of forests, halt deforestation, restore degraded forests and substantially increase afforestation and reforestation globally.

Sustainable Forest Management is a dynamic and multidimensional concept. It is dynamic because it evolves over time and because it takes into account not just present generations, but also future ones. It is multidimensional, becuse the progress towards sustainable forest management needs to be measured in the environmental, economic and social spheres. Given this, SDG indicator 15.2.1 is composed of five sub-indicators that measure progress towards all dimensions of sustainable forest management.
