Pacific Soil Partnership

On the 13th October 2014, the soil community from 12 Pacific countries together with universities, research institutes, SPC and FAO assembled in Suva, Fiji. The meeting was hosted by the Pacific Community (SPC) and supported by FAO, CSIRO (Australia) and Landcare Research (New Zealand).

The region’s soils are diverse and vulnerable and through joint activities the Pacific Soil Partnership intend to maintain and improve productivity, share resources and information in order to increase local food production and food quality, achieve climate change mitigation and adaptation, control land degradation and improve environmental management. New initiatives and education are also under discussion to find solutions that improve livelihoods.
