Faced with a new global paradigm of achieving the Sustainable Development goals by 2030 and especially on the issue of soils, goal 15.3, which says: “By 2030, fight desertification, rehabilitate degraded lands and soils, including lands affected by desertification, drought and floods, and seek to achieve a world with neutral soil degradation. ” In this regard, it is clear that the international community has taken up the sustainability approach as a “bet” to somehow remedy the problem of the degradation of the Earth's resources, and thereby create a better future. This approach to soils acquires a major relevance in at least three aspects: 1) in the ecological balance for wildlife; 2) in productive use; and 3) in environmental health for the benefit of people as a fundamental human right. That is, by relaunching the message of “Sustainable Land Management” as a hopeful concept and a means to achieve greater objectives in relation to food security, migration, the fight against poverty and malnutrition.
