An assessment of land degradation was carried out following the UNCCD’s Good Practice Guidance (GPG) version 2 to monitor the baseline status (2000 - 2015) of the productivity sub-indicator of SDG Indicator 15.3.1 (Proportion of land that is degraded over total land area) to locate the degraded areas in Uruguay. MODIS NDVI data were used to calculate the three productivity metrics.
