The hidden world beneath our feet #WorldSoilDay
Do you know the main drivers of soil biodiversity loss?
What can you do to stop it? #SoilBiodiversity
Soil organisms act as the primary driving agents of nutrient cycling, regulating the dynamics of soil organic matter, soil carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emission, modifying soil physical structure and water regimes, enhancing the amount and efficiency of nutrient acquisition by the vegetation and enhancing plant health.
This year’s campaign by FAO “Keep soil alive, Protect soil biodiversity” 📥 aims to raise awareness on the importance of maintaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being by addressing the growing challenges in soil management, fighting soil biodiversity loss, increasing soil awareness and encouraging governments, organizations, communities and individuals around the world to commit to proactively improving soil health.
World Soil Day (WSD) is celebrated annually on the 5th of December #WorldSoilDay
