Some of the more than 100 scientists involved in writing the UN-FAO report, "State of Knowledge of Soil Biodiversity: Status, Challenges, and Potentialities" will discuss why they volunteered to be a contributor, why it is important to contribute scientific knowledge to policy, and their thoughts on the importance of this report for the future of research and policy.

The report is produced by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and will be unveiled on Dec. 4, 2020, in conjunction with World Soil Day, on Dec. 5.

The webinar series is sponsored by the Global Soil Biodiversity Initiative.
