Healthy soils and secure sources of water are crucial in our quest for climate resilience. Soils host over 25% of the world’s biodiversity, they nourish our crops, they clean our water and store vast amounts of carbon and yet 60% of soil in the EU is classed as degraded. Water shortages lay bare our need to change our we manage and distribute this increasingly precious resource. Join us for a solutions-driven panel discussion on soil and water through the prisms of sustainable farming, agricultural incentives, water governance models, policy and much more!
