With the establishment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, the Human Development Forum at Tudor Rose has expanded its publishing operation with the creation of a series of volumes entitled A Better World, each dedicated to one or more of the 17 SDGs. This volume, published in September 2018, covers Goal 15: Life on Land, and particularly Goal 15.3, which aims to achieve Land Degradation Neutrality
(LDN) globally by 2030.
Goal 15 and the significance of LDN targets have opened a window of opportunity for many countries to strengthen their policies for sustainable use of land and soils. A Better World: Volume 4 outlines the concept, the main elements and the current international framework for assessing the progress towards SDG target 15.3. It proposes a stepwise approach to further tailor national requirements with the overall goal of LDN implementation. The following articles discuss the progress and challenges in this essential topic, highlighting good practices in a wide variety of societies and disciplines.
By focusing on the experiences and livelihoods of people, especially those in vulnerable human habitats, the book shows the benefits of best policy and practices, and how these may develop further as we come to terms with a changing and more turbulent world. This innovative endeavour is a striking example of sharing respective resources to engage the many official governmental, international organisations, institutional and professional interests in displaying the extent and variety of their efforts to make the world a better place.
