Prince Charles to Launch Global Push to Protect Soil Health Worldwide

Author: Roger Harrabin October 26, 2016

Prince Charles is joining a UK-France government initiative to improve the condition of global soils.

Both governments are meeting the Prince to discuss the need to improve the health of soils worldwide.

Prince Charles has praised the French government’s signature project on soil health, the ‘Four per Thousand Initiative’, which seeks to increase the organic content and health of soils worldwide.

In the coming weeks, ministers from both government’s will debate how to store more carbon in soils.

They will also discuss how to restore degraded soils, improve fertility and increase food security.

The Prince will also speak next month at the world climate conference COP22 Marrakech in Morocco.
