Sustainable soil/land management for Climate-Smart Agriculture.
Sustainable soil/land management for Climate-Smart Agriculture. Production and Resources. B7 - 1 Sustainable soil and land management and climate change. B7 - 2 Strategies for sustainable soil and land management for CSA. B7 - 3 Sustainable soil and land management for CSA in practice. This chapter provides examples of sustainable soil and land management practices that are designed to protect and restore soils and soil biodiversiy, control soil erosion control, sequester soil carbon and optimize water management in the soil. 1 Preventing and mitigating land degradation.
The proceedings book of the GSER19 contains all papers presented both orally and in poster format during the symposium. The papers have provided sufficient scientific evidence to show that soil erosion is a global threat to food production systems, rural livelihoods, human health and biodiversity, and that coordinated action needs to be fostered and accelerated to address this issue.

Reversing the degradation of soil, water and biological resources and enhancing crop and livestock production through appropriate land use and management practices are essential components in achieving food and livelihood security
Reversing the degradation of soil, water and biological resources and enhancing crop and livestock production through appropriate land use and management practices are essential components in achieving food and livelihood security. Symptoms of soil degradation are numerous and include decline of soil fertility, development of acidity, salinization, alkalization, deterioration of soil structure, accelerated wind and water erosion, loss of organic matter and biodiversity.
Stop soil erosion, Save our future . 15-17 May 2019, FAO HQ, Rome, Italy. The Global Symposium on Soil Erosion (GSER19), ‘Stop soil erosion, Save our future’ was held from 15-17 May 2019, at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Headquarters in Rome, Italy. This science-policy meeting was co-organized by the UN FAO and its Global Soil Partnership (GSP), the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS), together with the Science-Policy Interface (SPI) of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), and the Joint FAO/IAEA Programme of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture.
Soil erosion occurs primarily when land is exposed to the action of rain. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations: Soil Erosion by Water: some measures for its control on cultivated lands
Soil erosion occurs primarily when land is exposed to the action of rain. Unprotected by a cover of vegetation and the binding action of roots, each raindrop hits the naked soil with the impact of a bullet. On a slope, more than half of the soil contained in those splashes is carried downhill and either ends up in the valley below or are washed out to sea by streams and rivers.

Our understanding of the physical processes of erosion and the controls on those processes has been firmly established.

Raw data from the United Nations. 1 Agricultural surfaces and climate changes. 2 Erosion and fertility. During the period 1990-2012, Nigeria had an average temperature which ranged from a low of 2. °C in January to a high of 3. °C in April
Raw data from the United Nations. Climate change and agriculture are interrelated processes, both of which take place on a global scale. 3 Potential effects of global climate change on pests, diseases and weeds. 4 Glacier retreat and disappearance. °C in April. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Nigeria is by far the world's largest producer of yams, producing over 38 million tonnes.
