Advancements in landscape-scale soil health monitoring for carbon accounting and restoration tracking

with Leigh Ann Winowiecki, PhD, Soil and Land Health Research Lead at the Center for International Forestry Research and World Agroforestry

“A world without healthy soil is a world in which little grows,” Winowiecki writes. Based in Nairobi, Kenya, Winowiecki’s research on landscape restoration, regenerative agricultural practices, and soil organic carbon counting takes a global approach to soil health across landscapes.

Join us in an exploration of advancements in soil health monitoring, including ICRAF’s Land Degradation Surveillance Framework — co-developed by Winowiecki — and her work in leading the Coalition of Action 4 Soil Health — inspired by the UN Food Systems Summit — to assess ecosystem health and improve soil health globally by addressing barriers that constrain farmers from adopting and scaling healthy soil practices.
