Recognizing the importance of life on land and soil health has been in the limelight for past few decades. Keeping in mind the importance of soil health and conservation of the ecosystem, the United Nations has outlined specific sustainable development goals, which are properly aimed at promoting and maintaining soil health and sustainable practices. Some of the major points here are-

1.      Saving ecosystems- terrestrial and wetland ecosystems, support many various species of flora and fauna and numerous microorganisms in the soil which are important to support the plant and soil health. Soil ecosystem is very important in order to maintain the plant health and providing the nutrition to all the members of the food chain, which finally decomposes in the soil, making the cycle going on.

Challenges being faced in life on land

Life on the upper surface of the planet, is one of the major challenges which is being faced in all the countries overall. Some of the major challenges that are being faced here as follows-

1.      Deforestation- deforestation is one of the major challenges that the globe is facing due to the depletion of the life on the upper layer of the planet.

2.      Unsustainable agricultural practices- chemical fertilizers which are being used in the farms and agricultural practices these days is making a significant change in the upper layers of the soil and causing more harm than good in the ecosystem.

3.      Urbanization- urbanization is one of the major problems that is responsible for hamper of the soil quality and in turn the decrease of the quality of the nutrients that are being provided to the components of the food cycle in the chain.
