This narrative whiteboard animation explains how Soil Erosion contributes to The Climate Emergency. In 2019, the United Nations stated that the world loses 12 million hectares of land every year. This means that high quality, fertile land – the size of the Netherlands – is being lost annually, as sediment run-off to our rivers, dams, lakes and oceans. Narrated by Professor William Blake, expert in Catchment Science at University of Plymouth, UK.
