More Science-Society interfaces for a global soil security

Paris, France, 5-6 December 2016

The 2nd Global Soil Security Conference aims to demonstrate that soil, this highly pressurized and crucial resource, is indispensable partner to meet sustainable development goals. The demonstration will be done by linking businesses, practitioners, policymakers and researchers on soil security dimensions through good working practices, business solutions, scientific outcomes and international initiatives that enhance protection and sustainable management of soils.

We invite you to join us to learn from and share your experiences from land management, business, policy and local practice!
