Training “Digital Soil Organic Carbon Mapping: towards the development of national soil organic carbon stock maps”

Recently, the Global Soil Partnership (GSP) and its Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS) launched a global endeavor to develop a Global Soil Organic Carbon map (GSOCMap) by the end of 2017, in support of the Sustainable Development Goal Indicator 15.3.1. The GSOCMap will be compiled from soil organic carbon maps developed at national level using nationally available data.

The FAO/GSP is funding a 3-week training session, co-organized and co-funded in kind by ISRIC – World Soil Information, in support of 16 countries to develop national soil organic carbon (SOC) stock maps in contribution to the GSOCMap initiative. This training will be hosted by ISRIC from 6-23 June 2017 at the ISRIC facilities in Wageningen, The Netherlands.
