Soil is too often taken for granted, particularly in Africa according to a soil expert based at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization’s regional office in Accra, Ghana.
Thiombiano Lamourdia says that due to an increasing population, more agro-processing is needed to reduce the pressure on the land for the next generations.
He says Ethiopia is an example of how a 10-year plan focusing on land management can help support healthier soil.
As the international community marks Global Soil Week, Sandra Ferrari asked Mr Lamourdia about the state of African soils.
