Abstract

Land degradation impacts human well-being and biodiversity while increasing exposure to emerging infectious diseases. The primary indirect driver of land degradation is consumption, which increasingly involves agricultural products produced far away. Reversing these negative trends requires the decommoditization of land products through consumer-transparent “farm to table” information on land health combined with an efficient land use planning that is a greater optimization of land use and management decisions towards the achievement of multiple benefits.
