Open session on soil security

Soil is undoubtedly one of the most valuable natural resources for humans, providing food and many other ecosystem services. But soil is under threat, e.g. by erosion, urban sprawl, loss of nutrients or contamination. Destruction of soils cannot be reversed in a reasonable time span. Surprisingly, there are no international conventions to protect soils.

In cooperation with the Swiss Soil Science Society (SSSS), NRP 68 is organising the symposium "The International Year of Soils: open session on soil security".
