SALDi - South African Land Degradation Monitor


With regard to the widespread land degradation across South Africa SALDi, the South African Land Degradation Monitor, pursues the following overarching targets:

  1. Development of a system for permanent observation for ecosystem changes and degradation based on satellite remote sensing
  2. Modelling the interaction of surface changes, weather and climate conditions
  3. Improving procedures for assessing soil degradation with a focus on runoff related soil erosion
  4. Considering socio-economic dimensions and influences of land degradation as well as evaluating SALDi outputs through local stakeholders
