    Excerpt from the article by Melissa Hogenboom:

    “To feed the world’s anticipated nine billion people by 2050, and with little new productive land available, it’s a case of all lands needed on deck,” said lead author Manzoor Qadir from the UN University’s Institute for Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH).

    “We can’t afford not to restore the productivity of salt-affected lands,” he added.
