Trends.Earth (formerly the Land Degradation Monitoring Toolbox) is a platform from Conservation International for monitoring land change using earth observations in an innovative desktop and cloud-based system.

Track achievement of the sustainable development goals

The three sub-indicators for monitoring achievement of Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target 15.3), are supported by Trends.Earth: productivity, land cover, and soil organic carbon. The tool also supports countries in analyzing data to prepare for their reporting committments to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD).

Trends.Earth allows users to plot time series of key indicators of land change (including degradation and improvement), to produce maps and other graphics that can support monitoring and reporting, and to track the impact of sustainable land management or other projects.

Trends.Earth was produced by a partnership of Conservation International, Lund University, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), with the support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
