The LDN Target Setting Programme

LDN TSP support provided to countries

The Secretariat and the Global Mechanism of the UNCCD, in collaboration with multiple partners developed the LDN Target Setting Programme.

To address the multiple Sustainable Development Goals in a synergistic and cost effective manner, countries can now formulate voluntary targets to achieve LDN, according to their specific national context and development priorities. These targets will also further strengthen the implementation of the countries’ UNCCD National Action Programmes.

What support does the LDN TSP provide to participating countries?

Under the LDN Target Setting Programme, participating country Parties receive:

  • Support for conducting a multi-stakeholder consultation process and identifying leverage opportunities
  • Access to the best available data on the LDN baseline and trends
  • Technical guidance and specialized expertise
  • Assistance in identifying LDN investment opportunities, in order to link LDN target setting with LDN implementation

 

How to engage in the LDN TSP

The LDN Target Setting Programme became fully operational during the first quarter of 2016.

In order to participate on a voluntary basis in this programme, your UNCCD National Focal Point Institution should submit a letter of interest to LDNtargetsetting@unccd.int. You can also contact us on this e-mail address for more information.
