Soil Carbon Sequestration – for climate, food security and ecosystem services
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Council of Ministers Secretariat, Klima og luftgruppen (KoL)2015 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Soil carbon sequestration and preservation of present stocks reduces net global greenhouse gas emission and can contribute significantly to both Nordic and international goals of limiting serious climate change. In order to achieve this, sustainable use of soil resources, better soil and water management practices, and restoration of degraded soils is needed. Protection and restoration of soil organic carbon are also key solutions to many of the most pressing global challenges facing mankind today. Highlighting the importance of the soil and the multiple benefits of soil organic carbon sequestration has never been more needed than now.
