FOOD SECURITY. CLIMATE CHANGE. TRACKING LAND HEALTH.​

By 2050, the global population is expected to surpass 9 billion people. Will the land be able to feed us all? Understanding the health of Earth's lands has never been more critical.

      Trends.Earth is an online platform that monitors "land degradation" — the reduction or loss of the biological or economic productivity of land. Using satellite imagery and global data, Trends.Earth can identify degraded areas and help decision-makers improve them. Piloted in four African countries, the tool can now be used anywhere in the world.

      The Sustainable Development Goals aim to achieve "land-degradation neutrality" - where the quality of land resources remains stable or increases - by 2030. Trends.Earth can support countries in achieving land-degradation neutrality. Without it, our future is not sustainable.

      How does Trends.Earth work?

      Trends.Earth offers data and tools to inform land management decisions. The platform uses cloud computing to process massive satellite images into usable information, assessing land trends through three indicators: land productivity, land cover and soil carbon.

      EditText:Trends.Earth analyzes multiple global satellite datasets and can incorporate national-level data where available, then integrates them into a user-friendly interface. Trends.Earth also standardizes how land degradation is measured, as well as analysis of data, in support of reporting to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) or the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
