World Soil Day

The vital connection between soil and water is what keeps our world alive. These two essential
resources are the source of more than 95% of our food. Our ecosystems are held together by water in
the soil, which is essential for plants to absorb nutrients. The basis of our agricultural systems is this
symbiotic interaction. But due to human activity and climate change, our soils are deteriorating, which is
placing undue strain on our water supplies.

By lowering water infiltration and availability for all forms of life, erosion upsets the natural equilibrium.
Reduced erosion and pollution, increased water infiltration and storage, crop rotation, low tillage, and
the addition of organic matter are examples of sustainable soil management techniques that promote
soil health. These methods are essential in the battle against climate change because they enhance
fertility, protect soil biodiversity, and aid in carbon sequestration.

Raising awareness of the role and connection between soil and water in creating resilient and
sustainable agrifood systems is the goal of the World Soil Day (WSD) 2023 campaign. With the aim of
empowering and involving people worldwide in enhancing soil health, WSD is a distinctive worldwide
forum that honors soils.

Let’s work together to create a future where water and soil are handled responsibly so they may
continue to be the faithful defenders of our climate and ecosystem.
