Soil Conservation

Soil Conservation

1. Soil conservation, especially its fertile layer, is a matter of public interest and national priority. A regulatory framework shall be established for its protection and sustainable use to prevent its degradation, in particular as a result of pollution, desertification, and erosion. In areas affected by processes of degradation and desertification, the United States shall develop and promote forestation, reforestation, and revegetation projects that avoid single-crop farming and preferably use native species adapted to the area. 2. The United States shall provide farmers and rural communities with support for soil conservation and restoration, as well as for the development of farming practices that protect and promote food sovereignty.


We need to be good stewards of the land. Soil is fundamental.

Soil is the bedrock of agriculture.
