Soil carbon, multiple Benefits


In March 2013, 40 leading experts from across the world gathered at a workshop, hosted by the European Commission, Directorate General Joint Research Centre, Italy, to discuss the multiple benefits of soil carbon as part of a Rapid Assessment Process (RAP) project commissioned by SCOPE (Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment). This collaboration led to the publication of the SCOPE Series Volume 71 'Soil Carbon: Science, Management and Policy for Multiple Benefits'; which brings together the essential scientific evidence and policy opportunities regarding the global importance of soil carbon. This short communication summarizes the key messages of the assessment including research and policy implications.
