The aim of SDG 15 Life on Land is to sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss
Grantham Scholar projects tackle SDG 15 Life on Land from both above and below. For example, Matthew Hethcoat is using satellite data, working under the supervision of an award winning academic. The satellites will measure tropical forest degradation and its consequences. Whereas Nancy Muringai‘s work focuses on a narrow region of soil called the rhizosphere. This region is directly influenced by root secretions and associated soil microorganisms.
