Under the Economics of Land degradation initiative (ELD), scientists from ICARDA are collaborating with developments to develop the GeOC tool. It is a new web-based GIS tool to define context specific options for sustainable land management required to achieve Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN).
This video illustrates the interface of the SLM tool of the GeOC tool.
