The impact of climate change to soil

Introduction
Climate change has a major impact on soil, and changes in land use and soil can either accelerate or slow down climate change. Without healthier soils, and a sustainable land and soil management, we cannot tackle the climate crisis, produce enough food and adapt to a changing climate.
