Soil erosion is threatening our food security

Soil may not look like much but without it we wouldn’t be able to produce our food! But soil erosion is threatening our food security. Every 5 seconds the equivalent of one soccer pitch is eroded! Once we lose this soil we won’t see it again in our lifetime. If we don’t act now, over 90% of the Earth’s soils could become degraded by 2050. We need to protect our soils for a secure future of food!
