Soils constitute the largest store of terrestrial carbon and, when managed well, can play an important role in climate change adaptation and mitigation by sequestering greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere. In addition, Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) can help increase the nutrition of soils, which could help farmers produce more crops.

The Global Symposium on SOC is a science conference which will explore the role of SOC in increasing food security, fighting climate change, reversing land degradation, and contributing to overall sustainable development.

WLE will be participating and contributing through our partners at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) and the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT).
