The Soil Carbon Alliance is a network supporting and connecting people all over the planet who are taking direct action to increase the amount of carbon-rich organic matter in their own soils. Farmers, ranchers, grassroots groups and citizens worldwide are demonstrating the enormous benefits of building soil carbon and soil life, and the combined solutions for challenges of climate change and degradation of the biosphere.
We are also committed to informing and educating policymakers in the value of eco-restorative methods to repair landscapes and water cycles, and by demonstrating the reductions in atmospheric greenhouse gases that result from putting these methods in practice, we seek to change the climate conversation to a hopeful and constructive one.
Action at all levels is necessary. By increasing awareness of soil-based solutions to the climate crisis, we will urge that soil be recognized in the United Nations protocols as an indispensable sink for carbon sequestration. The momentum of groups of people worldwide acting to improve their own environments will make these policy actions imperative.
