  • Achieving land degradation neutrality (LND) at the country level


    Abstract ID# 163

    Presenting Author: Chizoba  Chinweze

    Summary Statement: The LDN target setting process provides a major opportunity for countries to increase coherence, scale, and resource mobilization by mapping out achievable targets. Desertification is threatening the livelihoods of 1 billion people in over 100 countries , and each year 12 million hectares of arable land are lost to drought . The extent and severity of land degradation worldwide combined with the negative effects of climate change, population growth and an ever-increasing demand for natural resources requires immediate and assertive action. The economic costs of desertification and land degradation are estimated at USD 490 billion per year. Avoiding land degradation through sustainable land management can generate up to USD 1.4 trillion of economic benefits . Desertification/drought and land degradation exacerbated by climatic changes in various parts of Africa affects over 70% of the population leading to reduction in food production, loss of biodiversity and livelihoods. The African Union (55 member-countries) therefore launched in 2007 the Great Green Wall for the Sahara and the Sahel Initiative (GGWSSI) with 21 countries participating; by planting trees 8,000km-long and 15km-wide corridor along the southern edge of the Sahara, from Senegal in the west to Dijbouti in the east; combat desertification and restore the fertility of the degraded land.

  • How alignment with SDGs during project delivery can reduce social conflict


    Abstract ID# 165

    Presenting Author: Claudia  Valencia Franke |  Coauthor(s):  Stewart sarahjane.stewart@snclavalin.com

    Summary Statement: The main drivers for conflict in the extractive and infrastructure industries include poor community engagement, inadequate benefit sharing and excessive impacts on the economy, society and the environment (UN, 2012). By developing a project within the UN SDG’s framework, potential sources of conflict can be managed. For example, if Goals 9 and 12 are included while planning a new project, and local and regional procurement are promoted whenever possible, local sustainable development can be fostered, resulting in more benefits for the region. Goal 9 and 13 promote the use of clean, environmentally beneficial technologies and industrial processes, which can be more efficiently achieved at the project design stage. If Goal 15 is envisioned, restoration and conservation of ecosystems can be included as commitments and environmental impacts can be minimized. It is important for all large engineering and infrastructure companies who are employed to plan, design, build and analyze environmental and social impacts for such projects, to implement a Sustainability Policy and Framework aligned with the SDGs. It is possible to include tasks and actions aligned to the SDGs in project design, trade-off analyses, construction and procurement decisions, development of mitigation and compensation measures, which can later result in measurable benefits for the economy, the environment and a more positive relationship with local communities and a reduction in conflict and distrust.
