The workshop will apply a multi-stakeholder dialogue format and focus on short presentations with dynamic and open discussions.
These resources underpin key ecosystem services such as the provision of renewable energy, food and water which are entrenched in the discussions for the development of the SDGs and are expected to become standalone goals. However, interlinkages between these services pose the challenge of managing tradeoffs as well as considering implications for land use and land use changes. A Nexus framing can help minimize tradeoffs at two levels: first, we need to develop an approach to coherently integrate soil and land resources in the SDGs at the target and indicator level, in addition; we need to complement the implementation of the Nexus at the global level through integrated natural resource management at the landscape level. At the workshop, we will discuss existing concepts and initiatives to reach a joint understanding of soil and land-related aspects that need to be addressed in the SDGs in order to minimize tradeoffs and discuss a potential partnership to develop appropriate targets and indicators as input to the UN Sustainable Development Goals process.
