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
Soil security has become the central dogma of the sustainable soil management that should integrate the roles of soil functions for soil health, ecosystem services, climate change and human health. We will tailor the GSS 2023 programs specifically to connecting soil security to the theme of GSS 2023
The journal aims to publish papers covering all facets of this far-reaching definition.In particular, it will publish uni-disciplinary and multidisciplinary evidence-based research on all aspects of soil security. Disciplines may include natural, economic, social and political sciences
