The UAE features a variety of diverse ecosystems and unique landscapes, from the beautiful beaches to the deserts, mountains, wadi’s and even the cities we live in. What we do not often think about, however, is what lays beneath them all. The Emirates Soil Museum explores just that.
It may not sound glamorous, but soil is highly significant to every ecosystem and has a fascinating story to tell. Surprisingly, it adapts to changing conditions and is relevant to some of the most important issues today, including climate change and food security (you can learn more about the importance of these issues in today’s world from our Knowledge Hub).
