The UNCCD is also the custodian agency for SDG indicator 15.3.1 (“Proportion of land that is degraded over total land area”) to monitor progress towards achieving SDG target 15.3. Indicator SDG 15.3.1 has been upgraded to Tier 2 in November 2017.
Land degradation is defined as “the reduction or loss of the biological or economic productivity and complexity of rain fed cropland, irrigated cropland, or range, pasture, forest and woodlands resulting from a combination of pressures, including land use and management practices”. Total land area is the total surface area of a country less the area covered by inland waters, like major rivers and lakes. The indicator is expressed as a percent.
Information on the proportion of land that is degraded over total land area is going to be regularly collected and analysed by the UNCCD through its national reporting and review process beginning in 2018, and every four years thereafter.
UNESCO World Water Quality Portal for monitoring water quality (5 parameters) can support the Indicator 14.1.1 monitoring and reporting on coastal eutrophication.
