South America Soil Partnership

The South American Soil Partnership (SASP) was established in April 2012 to enhance linkages between national and local programs and activities of soil and land management in the region. The partnership aims to facilitate knowledge exchange and overcome differences in information, capacity, investment and environmental challenges faced by countries across the region. In this framework, national needs and priorities are translated into regional actions through the SASP implementation plan, which is revised at the yearly SASP meeting.
