Status of the world’s soil resources report

This report is a reference document on the status of global soil resources that provides regional assessments of soil change.

The report notes how there is a general consensus on soil-related strategies that can, on the one hand, increase the supply of food, while on the other, minimize harmful environmental impacts. »
