In a video clip, recently issued by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the importance of soil for all life on earth is again emphasized. The animated video is produced by the Global Soil Partnership and promotes the creation of a UN World Soil Day and the adoption of 2015 as the International Year of Soils. The animation outlines the importance and benefits of soils and the hazards currently facing them.

These same hazards, or soil threats, are under investigation by the RECARE project. Read more about RECARE on this website.
