A monitoring tool for Land Degradation (SDG 15.3.1), integrating LDN into a participatory land use planning approach via an interface that allows users to evaluate land use management transition scenarios.
is most crucial to focus land restoration efforts?
SLM interventions are optimal and feasible in order to achieve LDN?
Global gridded maps for land use, soil organic carbon and socio-ecological indices
Visual and quantitative representations of LD gains and losses
Designed as a ‘federated system’ – an open, collaborative and global network of independent data hubs equitably sharing information and knowledge relating to LDN, and as a monitoring tool aims to support users in achieving the relevant SDG 15.3.1 sub-indicators through analysing national and local data.
LUP4LDN was funded by a competitive grant from GEO-LDN.
As a software analytics tool, it supports policy-makers, land use planners, land users, national and sub-national organisations and research agencies in understanding optimal and feasible SLM interventions for LDN, alongside crucial areas to focus land restoration efforts.
Set the spatiotemporal context for your intervention at country, regional or local level and seamlessly collaborate with your team.
Use trusted data sources and applicable SLM practices to evaluate different options for using and managing land under your LDN goals.
Generate assessment reports for your LDN-informed Land Use and Management scenarios, backed by data presented in tabular and/or map formats.
