Soil | Land

Soil is a finite resource. The growing rate of land take and increasing loss of high-quality soil pose a threat for the intactness of ecosystems and our food security. Land sealing and soil degradation are resulting in a shortage of this resource and to harmful changes in soils. It prevents groundwater recharge and has a negative impact on biodiversity in soils. Climate change factors including rising temperatures and different precipitation levels affect soil quality. We must protect soils and safeguard them for future generations.
