Goal 15: Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss

15 - Life on land

From the air we breathe, to the water we drink, to the food we eat–forests sustain us. Around 1.6 billion people directly depend on forests for their livelihood, and forests are home to more than 80% of all terrestrial species of animals, plants and insects.

By supporting high quality carbon finance projects, businesses can deliver essential emission reductions and support low carbon sustainable development in areas most in need.

Example carbon finance project activities that aim to conserve life on land:
  • Support  communities to build sustainable livelihoods to contribute to the protection and restoration of forested areas and species populations (Targets 15.1 and 15.2)
  • Promote sustainable land use practices and tree planting activity to improve soil fertility and reduce erosion (Targets 15.1 and 15.2)
  • Enable communities to secure land ownership, promoting a long-term view to sustainable land management that avoids slash and burn practices (Target 15.1)
     

Projects that align with SDG 15: Conserve life on land

A number of carbon finance projects engage households and communities to realise the value of protecting ecosystems and turn this into an economically viable way of life.

Below are a sample of such projects. If you'd like to find out more about a particular project, follow the link.
