Land Degradation Neutrality

Land is being degraded rapidly worldwide. Ensuring food security for a growing global population requires healthy land resources and flourishing ecosystems. Yet our current agricultural practices are causing soils worldwide to be eroded up to 100 times faster than natural processes replenish them. ​

We have already altered 70 percent of all ice-free land, impacting over 3.2 billion people. At current rates, 90 percent of land will bear our imprint by 2050. The impacts of land degradation will be felt by most of the world’s population. ​Land degradation also changes and disrupts rainfall patterns, exacerbates extreme weather like droughts or floods, and drives further climate change.​ It results in social and political instability, which drives poverty, conflict, and migration. ​

The UNCCD’s goal of land degradation neutrality (LDN) can halt, and then reverse, this alarming picture of the future. ​We are already helping 129 of the world’s 196 countries that have pledged (or are aiming) to arrest land degradation by 2030. ​More than 100 countries participate in the Changwon Initiative, which supports national voluntary target setting processes to achieve land degradation neutrality (LDN). We define LDN as “a state whereby the amount and quality of land resources necessary to support ecosystem functions and services to enhance food security remain stable, or increase, within specified temporal and spatial scales and ecosystems.”​


Rising up from drought together

In addition to drought, human activities also contribute to desertification – the degradation of land in arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid areas. It occurs because dryland ecosystems, which cover over one-third of the world’s land area, are extremely vulnerable to overexploitation and inappropriate land use. Poverty, political instability, deforestation, overgrazing and bad irrigation practices can all undermine the productivity of the land. For these reasons, the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought is observed yearly to promote public awareness of international efforts to combat desertification. The day is a unique moment to remind everyone that land degradation neutrality is achievable through problem-solving, strong community involvement and cooperation at all levels.

This year, the theme of the International Day against Desertification and drought is “Rising up from drought together”, and will be observed on June 17. The global observance of the event will take place in Spain, a country that is particularly vulnerable to drought.



2022 Desertification and Drought Day

2022 global observance of the Desertification and Drought Day will be hosted by the government of Spain. To learn more about this event and explore the ways to join the global campaign, share your story of drought resilience or feature your event on 17 June, please visit this page:

Drought is one of the most destructive natural disasters in terms of the loss of life, arising from impacts, such as widescale crop failure, wildfires and water stress. Exacerbated by land degradation and climate change, droughts are increasing in frequency and severity, up 29% since 2000, with 55 million people affected every year. By 2050, droughts may affect an estimated three-quarters of the world’s population. It’s a global and urgent issue. Droughts have always been a part of nature and the human experience but are now much worse largely due to human activity.Hardly any country is immune to drought, but all countries can prepare better to tackle drought effectively.Drought is daunting, as its effects on people’s lives and livelihoods are devastating. But through ingenuity, commitment and solidarity, it can be addressed successfully.Tools are available to assess drought risk. Solutions exist to ensure lives and livelihoods are no longer lost to drought.Everyone can participate in actions that increase our collective resilience because every action counts.Take action on this year’s Desertification and Drought Day and beyond. Action can be taken at all levels, from citizens, businesses, governments and UN partners, everyone can come on board and lend a helping hand to rise up from drought together.





Soil Judging

Soil Judging Introduction

As part of the World Congress of Soil Science 2022 (WCSS) we are pleased to announce the launch of the quadrennial, hotly contested, Soil Judging Competition! This is an opportunity to demonstrate your skills, whilst enjoying some time away in Stirling, the historic “Gateway to the Highlands”. In teams of four you will spend time in training with some of the foremost experts in the field of soil science, before representing your country or region in competition at sites across scenic Scotland. With prizes presented on the opening night of the World Congress, during the prestigious opening ceremony, this is an accolade worth working for.

The British Society of Soil Science (BSSS) is hosting the 22nd WCSS on behalf of the International Union of Soil Science (IUSS), and the competition will include the high-level training including guest speakers, which is associated with this event. Offering education, skills, support, and professional development across all stages of a soil professionals’ career is the core BSSS’ aims and we are keen to share local knowledge with researchers at the early stages of their career to enhance their knowledge and learning.

Can you take the challenge? Want to see how your team measures up against your international competitors? Are you an Early Career scientist? You can find more information, including eligibility criteria and registration, on the WCSS 22 website at: or by contacting us on

Ako ste zainteresovani da predstavite Vaš rad, pošaljite naslov teme i sažetak rada sa 5-10 redova teksta na e mail predsjedavajućem odgovarajućoj sesiji i Diani Vieira. Na osnovu broja prijedloga, sjednice se mogu spajati, produžavati ili mijenjati.
Rok za podnošenje prijedloga: 29.5.2022
Učešće je besplatno i otvoreno (obrazac za registraciju učešća ćete biti uskoro objavljen
Na radionici će se diskutovati u okviru gore navedenih tema a posebno o temama koje su od interesa za RG: „Erozija zemljiišta u vezi sa njegovom degradacijom, klimatske promjene, bezbjednost hrane“. Rezultati radionice će biti objavljeni u ili u posebnom posebno izdanju časopisa, zajedno sa sažecima.
Radna grupa za eroziju zemljišta trenutno ima 52 člana. Ona će biti obnovljena/ažurirana u oktobru 2022.
Ova radna grupa je formirana na osnovu prethodnih sastanaka ove radne grupe za eroziju zemljišta u JRC Ispra (mart 2017), Seulu (decembar 2017) i radionice o eroziji u Gulliju (mart 2018). Pored toga, 67 naučnika širom svijeta je razvilo prvu globalnu aplikaciju za praćenje modeliranja erozije zemljišta (GASEMT).
Radna grupa razvija veze između erozije zemljišta i novih problema kao što su klimatske promjene, bezbjednost hrane i degradacija zemljišta. Radna grupa će predložiti pristupe modeliranja koji mogu da odgovore na nove strategije razvoja zaštite zemljišta u evropskim zemljama kao što su: Zajednička poljoprivredna politika (CAP) poslije 2020. godine, nova strategija o zemljištu, strategija očuvanja biodiverzitet, osiguranja nulte zagađenosti zemljišta
