#15: SUSTAINABLY MANAGE FORESTS, COMBAT DESERTIFICATION, HALT AND REVERSE LAND DEGRADATION, HALT BIODIVERSITY LOSS

Life on land, on our beautiful planet Earth, is under terrible stress. This comprehensive Goal covers nearly every aspect of the threat to living ecosystems and biodiversity. We cannot afford to lose any more of nature — hence the repeated use of the word “halt” in the Targets section.
Review the targets and progress update for Goal 15 at the UN SDG15 website.

Five years ago I was in Belum-Temenggor for a scientific expedition organised by Pulau Banding Foundation. This year we are going to have another BRAINS (5-7 May 2018) to discuss about the sustainability of Belum-Temenggor Forest.

The Kota Damansara Community Forest Park (KDCFP) is a secondary forest located in Selangor, Malaysia. This is one of the important city forest manage by the local community, The project was initiated by MNS (Malaysian Nature Society). Maybe this forest in the city can be one of the agenda in the World Urban Forum in Kuala lumpur 7-13 February 2018.. We have many forest islands in Kuala Lumpur such as Bukit Nenas, Bukit Gasing, Bukit Kiara, Bukit Persekutuan and may be Taman Tugu that was proposed to ge another green area of Kuala lumpur..

The New Urban Agenda was adopted in October 2016 at the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development – Habitat III in Quito, Ecuador. It is a result of a unique consensus among all participating states. The document sets out a common vision and global standards for urban development in the coming decades. The New Urban Agenda comes in at a critical moment, when the first time in history over half of the world’s population is residing in cities. Cities, if planned and managed well, will become the main tool for sustainable development and has a potential to be a solution to many of the challenges our planet is facing today. The New Urban Agenda lays out the vision for future cities based on the science of urban development providing tools in crucial areas. The Theme of the Ninth session of the World Urban Forum (WUF9) “Cities 2030, Cities for All: Implementing the New Urban Agenda” – places the Forum’s focus on the New Urban Agenda as a tool and accelerator for achieving Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. WUF9 therefore provides a great opportunity to garner the efforts of all relevant actors to deliberate on, identify and commit to implementation of concrete solutions for the transformative commitments made in the New Urban Agenda (which are also fully aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals)
