PolicySustainable Development Goal 15
Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss. Nature provides us with our oxygen, regulates our weather patterns, pollinates our crops, produces our food, feed and fibre. Deforestation and desertification – caused by human activities and climate change – pose major challenges to sustainable development. Forests are vitally important for sustaining life on Earth, and play a major role in the fight against climate change.
