The  twelfth  session  of  the  Conference  of  the  Parties  of   the   UNCCD   (COP   12)   agreed   to   integrate   the   sustainable development goals (SDGs) and target 15.3 on  Land  Degradation  Neutrality  (LDN)  in  particular,  into  the  implementation  of  the  Convention,  stating  
that “striving  to  achieve  SDG  target  15.3  is  a  strong  vehicle  for  driving  implementation  of  the  UNCCD”(decision 3/COP 12). Moreover, COP 12 recognized that “a  significant  proportion  of  land  degradation  occurs  beyond arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid areas” and that “Parties may use the UNCCD to guide their policies relating   to   Desertification,   Land   Degradation   and   Drought (DLDD) and voluntary targets when striving to achieve LDN at the national and sub-national levels”

These  decisions  integrate  SDGs  and  the  target  15.3  on   Land   Degradation   Neutrality   LDN)   into   the   implementation  process  of  the  UNCCD  and  invite  countries    to    formulate    voluntary    targets    to    achieve LDN by 2030.
