Soil Health Resolution
Coalition of Action 4 Soil Health (CA4SH)
Healthy soil is the foundation of sustainable and regenerative food systems and provides vital ecosystem services, while also representing significant emission-saving opportunities. Efforts to combat desertification, to move from scarcity to prosperity, will need to consider how to scale soil health, globally. With over one-third of the Earth’s surface degraded and over 3.2 billion people negatively affected by degradation, continuing business as usual is no longer an option. Now is the time for multi-stakeholder action to build an enabling environment at multiple levels for supporting, financing, scaling, and monitoring healthy soil ecosystems.
The objectives of this session are to 1) Raise awareness of and support for the critical role of healthy soil to achieve the SDGs; 2) Garner support for the Soil Health Resolution; 3) Highlight examples from national advocates of soil health.
This session will contribute to the COP27 by bringing together diverse stakeholders from science, policy, development, conservation, and the private sector to garner support for scaling investments in soil health. The session will provide meaningful content and insights to the final statements coming out of the COP27.
