Target 15: By 2022, ecosystem resilience and the contribution of biodiversity to carbon stocks has been enhanced in Swaziland, through conservation and restoration, including restoration of at least 15 per cent of degraded ecosystems, thereby contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation and to combating desertification.

Sub Strategy 1: Strengthen Swaziland’s key ecosystems to ensure that the country remains a net carbon sink.
Strategic Action 2:Reduce greenhouse gas emissions emanating from land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF).
