Cuba is very important to have updated information on Sustainable Land Management (SLM) because the degradation is the main environmental problem identified in the National Environmental Strategy. In this sense, the country is working hard to address this environmental problem because the soil rehabilitation can last tens or even hundreds of years, hence fundamental efforts are directed to prevent further progression of degradation, especially in the areas most productive in the country. In terms of impacts to human welfare, the degradation has resulted in a decline in yields and a decline in agricultural production increase in food import costs and measures to improve the soil, affecting food security . 65% of the country's agricultural soils have a lower productivity than half of potential yield. In mountainous soils is 75%.
