Average proportion of natural vegetation embedded in agricultural lands


The natural vegetation around and embedded in croplands is calculated using a 1x1 km moving window. Values estimate the proportion of seminatural land around a cropland pixel which is then averaged at the national level for all cropland.


Natural and seminatural land embedded in agricultural lands.


Embedding at least 10% of natural and seminatural vegetation is being proposed as a planetary boundary to guarantee that agricultural lands have integrity and a minimum amount of natural capital to provide ecosystem services. Attaining 10% natural vegetation is a low target that all cropland systems must fulfill.
