UCL published research supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 15: Protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.
Through its world-class research and teaching, and the way it operates as an institution, UCL is playing a leading role in responding to the challenges set out in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
There is a growing realisation that the world’s ongoing economic growth needs to take place while protecting the environment and addressing social inequalities. The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a framework for this sustainable development. Adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, the SDGs are an urgent call for action by all countries in a global partnership.
At UCL we are already playing a leading role in these efforts through our world-class teaching, research and distinctive cross-disciplinary approach.
