Global Soil Partnership


This is the first issue of the GSP newsletter which the GSP Secretariat intends to produce and disseminate at regular intervals, to inform partners and other interested audiences about progress in the implementation of approved activities.

The Local Committee (LC) of the international workshop “Soil spectroscopy: the present and the future of soil monitoring” invites you to submit abstracts for oral contributions to the three workshop topics.

Coincidentally, on 5 of December 2012, the FAO Council also approved the proposal to establish a World Soil Day to be celebrated annually on 5 December (as tabled by IUSS) as a platform for raising awareness on the importance of soils for food security and eco-system functions.

In the framework of various soil events, new videos and animations have been launched.
