Soil and Nutrition

Soil: An essential ingredient to healthy food and nutrition

Soils are by nature linked to the micronutrient content of our food production and they can help to reverse the increasing trend of nutrient depleted soil by adopting sustainable soil management practices.

English

Soil and Climate change

Soils: Our ally against climate change

A look at how our Soils help to combat climate change in their role of sequestering CO2, and how our collective habits can damage this benefit with potentially devastating consequences.
