SDG 15 Life on Land

The aim of SDG 15 is to sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss

Grantham Scholars are working towards SDG 15 from above and below. Matthew Hethcoat is measuring tropical forest degradation and its consequences using satellite data, working under the supervision of award winning academic Professor Shaun Quegan. Whereas Nancy Muringai’s work focuses on the rhizosphere, a narrow region of soil that is directly influenced by root secretions and associated soil microorganisms.
