The ELD initiative produced a short information film on the importance of the economics of Land Degradation.

The ELD film depicts the value of productive land in provision of ecosystem services and goes on to show the current rapid depletion of this valuable non-renewable resource, which costs us dearly.

But how can we prevent this? We have to include the value of the soil's services and the cost of land degradation into our calculation to show that using soils in the way that most of us do today is simply not reasonable in the long run.

The ELD initiative has been set up to find out more about these actual costs by bringing together scientists, decision-makers in politics and industry and local land users from all over the world to calculate and discuss: How high are the costs of in-action? What needs to be done? And to further describe and communicate the benefits of adopting sustainable land management practices.
