The book International Yearbook of Soil Law and Policy is written by Harald Ginzky, Elizabeth Dooley, Irene L. Heuser, Patricia Kameri-Mbote, Robert Kibugi, and Till Markus. This fifth volume of the International Yearbook of Land Law and Management is remarkable. First, it is, so to speak, the “pandemic volume”. It was certainly conceptualized before the pandemic, but the entire writing, revising, and the revising process took place during the COVID-19 pandemic, which left the world — yes, we all know the entire world — breathless. The focus was, among other things, on the number of infected people, incidents, frightening developments, new variants of the virus, and appropriate measures to deal with unprecedented challenges.
In the later stages of the pandemic, the general effects on society at large and the lessons learned for other global threats, such as the climate and biodiversity crises, have been intensively discussed. This leads to the second point: why this volume is inherently special. It is the first volume of the decade during which many say that humanity as a whole, but also individual societies, must make a socio-ecological transformation towards climate neutrality and sustainability.
