Green Carbon Conference

1-3 April 2014, Brussels

The Conference theme of Green Carbon aims to clarify and highlight the often invisible yet vital link between Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) and soil health, and the role this link plays in the sustainability of agricultural production and the flow of ecosystem services. However, the topics to be addressed by the Conference will not be restricted only to the importance of SOC for the overall soil quality and health but also include other sustainability and landscape issues intimately related to the role of soil carbon such as ecosystem functions and services, climate change mitigation and carbon offset, and socio-economic and policy aspects.
