The United Nations calls its 17 Sustainable Development Goals "the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." With a target of achieving them by 2030, the goals are all interconnected and address the global challenges we face.

Goal 15 is "Life on Land." As the UN puts it: "Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss."
