A month on land: Restoring soils and landscapes - Agriculture and Ecosystems Blog
"Conservative estimates state that the world is losing 24 billion tons of fertile soil each year. That’s 3.4 tons lost every year for every person on the planet. In Africa alone, land degradation affects 67% of agricultural lands, with about 490 million hectares showing erosion and declining vegetation. Left unchecked, this will have huge impact on food security and human and environmental health."
