International Year of Soils 2015 - CALL for ACTIVITIES

The United Nations has declared 2015 as the International Year of Soils (IYS).


The FAO-Global Soil Partnership Secretariat is currently planning the implementation of the IYS through a Plan of Action. This Plan will be submitted to the Global Soil Partnership (GSP) Plenary Assembly for partner’s consideration, endorsement and support for implementation. The Secretariat is inviting GSP partners and other stakeholders working with soils to provide suggestions for activities that could be implemented during the IYS. Institutions that are already planning local activities to celebrate IYS are invited to share them with the GSP Secretariat, so that they can be included as part of the official IYS plan.

Any communication should be send to GSP-Secretariat@fao.org
