Targets of this goal
By 2030, it is necessary to achieve the following targets:
- Fight desertification, rehabilitate land, and strive for a land-neutral world
- Ensure the conservation of mountain ecosystems
- Take urgent action to end poaching and trafficking of protected species of flora and fauna
- Take measures to prevent the introduction of invasive alien species
- Integrate the values of ecosystems and biological diversity into national and local planning
We can currently advance towards the attainment of this goal:How does technology contribute to this SDG? See what we propose and tell us what you think
We have analyzed the literature and extracted the following ideas on how technologies are favouring this SDG.
See also what we propose and tell us what you think
AI is crucial to improve agricultural use by allowing more intensive use of the land and thus mitigating the pressure to occupy new land
Given that a significant part of the ground that is lost is due to forest fires, the use of AI is of interest to reduce this after-effect, acting in early prediction and even logistics for their extinction.
AI can serve for automating the identification of seeds and also in the early detection of plant diseases, allowing to combat it and / or limit its advance, reducing the use of herbicides
The proposed actions on which we introduce an opinion poll for this SDG, are described below:
Poll for SDG-15
The analyses of interrelationships between emerging technologies & AI, and the possibilities they offer to pursue the SDGs, led us to propose a series of actions and/or potential projects to develop.
Among these recommendations, which one is more important in your opinion?
R15.2 - AI for early detection of diseases in crops and reducing losses
R15.3 - AI to optimize water consumption in crops
R15.4 - Incorporation of intelligent sensors with IoT technologies for intelligent detection in real time
R15.5 - Big Data to efficiently integrate and analyze the data collected in large areas
