    In his thorough analysis of the world wide phenomena of land and soil degradation, Professor Paul L. G. Vlek draws a bleak picture. Not only that land and soil degradation is progressing at an alarming pace, having repercussions on food production and the environment; but, more alarmingly, these issues are still missing on the political agenda.Raising awareness does not mean to raise fears. However, ignoring the problems would only undermine our ability to address them adequately and in a timely manner. Keeping this principle in mind, UNU-EHS is prepared to assist decision makers and to contribute to enhance human security.
