Global Soils Conference 2024

Caring Soils Beyond Food Security:

Climate Change Mitigation & Ecosystem Services

NASC Complex, New Delhi, India | 19-22 November 2024


About the Conference

World population reaches 9.1 billion by 2050, about 34% higher population than today. According to UN reports, food insecurity is one of the major problems facing the world today. About 95% of food is produced directly or indirectly from soil resource. Therefore, sustainable soil resource management is one of the key socio-economic and environmental issues across the globe. In many parts of the world there is considerable difference between potential and actual yield resulting in food shortage, poverty and malnutrition. It is inevitable that the quantity and quality of the food produce to sustain the present and future generation mostly depends upon the soil fertility. Several researchers and policy makers have made considerable efforts to address soil quality issues for sustainable development. Notwithstanding these efforts, still unprecedented nutrient mining and soil degradation issues creep to upset the sustainability in production system and ecosystem services. In the coming decades, soil science will remain at the focal point of discussion for food production and environmental conservation, but it will be equally essential for devising strategies for issues such as climate change adaptation and mitigation, protection of biodiversity, essential ecosystem services, water quality, poverty alleviation and sustainable development. Thus, it is necessary to maintain and improve soil health to produce more food, fuel and fibre with less land without affecting the soil biodiversity and natural ecosystem services under changing climate scenario across the world. This ‘Global Soils Conference 2024’ is addressing all these important issues, which will be held during November 19-22, 2024 at NASC Complex, New Delhi, India. read more
