Description of the Presentation: The 4 per 1000 initiative, Soils for food security and climate, was launched in Paris during COP21 by the French Ministry of Agriculture, to promote soils restoration globally as one of the most promising climate mitigation strategy, as well as a key policy to promote food security and fight hunger worldwide. Anne-Marie Codur, of Tufts Global Development and Environment, will present this international initiative, the scientific evidence on which it is based, and its global policy objectives. Seth Itzkan and Karl Thidemann, co-founders and co-directors of Soil4Climate, an NGO and advocacy group, will present their work, and how they see their role as a member of the 4per1000 consortium, the international coalition including nation-states, NGOs, farmers associations and unions, research centers and universities, whose official launching will take place in November 2016 in Marrakesh, at COP22.
