This case study reviewed the new possible approaches utilized to implement the inter-linkages of the critical component of Goal 15 for addressing forest development to tackle deforestation, land degradation, and the protection of biodiversity, especially the target 15.2 and 15.3.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of aspirational ideas that build on a set of tangible targets and indicators that provide the bedrock on which these ideas can be achieved.
