Global Soil Partnership


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.

A short animated film tells the reality of soil resources around the world, covering the issues of degradation, urbanization, land grabbing and overexploitation; the film offers options to make the way we manage our soils more sustainable.
