The Climate - Soil Community of Practice

This Climate-Soil Community of Practice (CoP) has jointly been launched by the “4 per 1000” Initiative on soils for food security and climate and the GIZ Sector Project Soil Protection, Combating Desertification, Sustainable Land Management (BMZ) in 2020.

The core concern of this Climate-Soil Community of Practice is to raise the awareness of the climate change mitigation and adaptation potential of sustainable land management and SOC enriching practices and identify concrete pathways for improvement and implementation. Its aim is to disseminate information on successful projects in the area of SLM and carbon sequestration, highlight good practices for overcoming adoption barriers and strengthen the case for sustainable land management as a key to effective climate action.

In addition, we advocate for increased and tangible consideration of SOC in relevant interventions and policy processes, such as the National Determined Contributions (NDCs).

The Climate-Soil Community of Practice (CoP) provides a platform for collaboration and peer-learning amongst its members and offers an open space for discussion and creative thinking.

    Nous sommes tellement intéressés de pouvoir participer à cette noble session du fait que notre sol est toujours emporté par les aléas climatiques et par conséquent nous croupissons dans des défis interminables.
