Sustainable Development Goals

Goal 15: Life on Land

Land resources must be protected by reducing ecosystem and biodiversity loss. Biodiversity and a functioning biosphere are critical to health of ecosystems, and in turn, the health of humans. More than 1.6 billion people directly rely on forests for their livelihoods and many more depend more broadly on forest resources. Desertification, poaching and environmental changes continue to endanger species on land and in water. Satellite and drone technology are some solutions that can be employed to meet this goal.
