Soil Atlas 2015 offers an up-to-date overview
13-10-2015In the International Year of Soils the Soil Atlas offers facts and figures concerning the situation and significance of lands, soils and fields in Europe and the rest of the world. In accordance with valued tradition the Soil Atlas offers, in numerous graphs and texts, an up-to-date overview of the current state and threats to the soils that sustain our lives.
Heinrich-Böll Foundation: "2015 is the International Year of Soils. In this year, the United Nations wants to further the goal of soil protection. This Soil Atlas shows what can succeed and why the soil should concern us all. We need to fight for a just and sustainable soil and land policy. And when we are doing our weekly shopping, perhaps we need to think a little about what we can do to conserve the soil on which we depend."
The SOIL ATLAS 2015 is jointly published by the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Berlin, Germany, and the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, Potsdam, Germany.
