Webinar: Soil degradation and the Sustainable Development Goals

FCRN member Matthew Fielding will speak at this webinar on 25 September 2019 on soil degradation and the Sustainable Development Goals, hosted by SIANI (the Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative).

The webinar will present a model that combines natural sciences and economics that will help policy makers evaluate strategies and raise awareness amongst farmers and advisors over the importance of soil structure for food production, soil health and ecosystem resilience.

Questions that will be asked:

  1. Why is land pushed so hard?
  2. What role does soil structure have in sustainable agriculture?
  3. What is the value of healthy soils?
