Nature-based solutions for soil health

Soil health is often forgotten about as a hidden resource beneath our feet and yet it provides many benefits for nature, people and climate. There are various nature-based solutions we can promote to better support soil health and to improve ongoing issues such as loss of organic carbon from croplands, erosion and compaction in grasslands, and impacts for air pollution and climate change on our sensitive upland soils. These include practices which directly relate to soil management and those relating to land use and the landscape more generally. An overview of these topics will are given in this webinar to stimulate discussion. 

This webinar is part of a series exploring nature-based solutions and the fundamental role they play in meeting climate ambitions, restoring ecosystems and protecting biodiversity. This webinar series is part of our activities in the third theme of our STAGES on the road to COP26: Adaptation.
