Historically, soil health management has primarily focused on improving agricultural productivity and food security. Soils are an essential resource for the production of food, biomass, for the filtration of water, the preservation of biodiversity and the storage of carbon. Little attention has been paid to carbon sequestration in soils with co -benefits in terms of climate change mitigation and adaptation (CC-A&M). With their potential as carbon reservoirs, soils can contribute substantially to combat the increase of greenhouse gases (GHG) concentration.
