Abstract

Humanity's welfare is inextricably linked to the land such that a world at peace depends on productive and sustainable agriculture. Food security has been improving for a decade or more but it now appears that some of the increase in production has been won at the price of land degradation. There are well-grounded fears that many current land management practices are unsustainable.
