The conference Soil Carbon Sequestration, for climate, food security and ecosystem services is hosted by the Soil Conservation Service of Iceland and the Agricultural University of Iceland and held in cooperation with several international and Icelandic institutions. The conference will review the state of science, identify tools for enhancing Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) sequestration and recommend means to bridge the gap between science, policy and action. Among topics to be discussed are land use and land restoration practices that enhance SOC, how to verify carbon sequestration and linkages with UN-FCCC and post-Kyoto goals, agreements, and negotiations. The question of how to increase flow of climate linked funding for restoration of soil and land quality will also be explored.
