Pope Francis’s first visit to the United States marks a spiritual moment that brings an intense focus to the world’s neediest. His arrival comes just as the new Sustainable Development Goals are about to be formalized and three months before the world is expected to unite around a global climate agreement in Paris. This trio of events may signal a profound shift for people and the planet.

Sustainable Development Goal 15 aims to improve the management of forests, combat desertification, reverse land degradation and preserve biodiversity. It recognizes that poverty reduction, healthy land and vibrant ecosystems all go together.
