Global Soil Partnership

Regional Soil Laboratory Networks 

Countries are organized into Regional Soil Laboratory Networks (RESOLANs), the skeleton of GLOSOLAN. After the successful establishment of the Regional Soil Laboratory Networks for Asia (SEALNET) in 2017, Latin America (LATSOLAN) in 2018, and the Pacific (ASPAC), Africa (AFRILAB), Europe and Eurasia (EUROSOLAN) in 2019, GLOSOLAN successful launched the Regional Soil Laboratory Network for the Near East and North Africa (NENALAB) on 9 June 2020. 


Near East and North African Soil Laboratory Network (NENALAB)

The Near East and North African Soil Laboratory Network (NENALAB) was established through an inception meeting in June 2020.  The network aims to connect partners and networks already operating within the NENA region. Laboratories in NENALAB meet yearly to revise their work plan and position within GLOSOLAN.

Countries in NENALAB

Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen
