Welcome to Global Soil Security

Soil Security - a quick visual overview

This short video is a snapshot of what the soil security concept is all about - Enjoy



Soil scientists have long been telling us, 

'of the importance of soil to provide for our growing demand for food, water and energy, while at the same time meeting our exceptions that soil will provide ecosystem services that affect climate change, human health and maintain biodiversity'. 

Yet an overarching concept that brings together these biophysical and socio-economic perspectives of soil is still lacking and this has led to the launch of the Soil Security concept
