Definition(s)
Land degradation neutrality is achieved when the area of productive land, and therefore sustainable land use, remains stable or increases globally or in a given landscape or terrestrial ecosystem. A land-degradation neutral world specifically incorporates a global shift towards land stewardship to avoid degradation of new areas, and ensures that unavoidable degradation is offset by rehabilitating at least an equal amount of already degraded land in the same time span and in the same landscape (or at least in the same ecosystem).
