A technical workshop on 7-8 February 2019 in Ankara is bringing multiple stakeholders together to discuss the outline of the NAP, as well as the main objectives and outcomes to be achieved. The workshop is attended by around 75 participants from various government departments, universities, research institutions and more, discussing the main goals and objectives to be achieved in terms of sustainable soil management, the TSIS, soil research, as well as soil governance and legislation. Following this workshop, the draft NAP will be developed around these objectives and specific actions formulated to be implemented over the next 5 years.
