Global Soils Week-Regional Perspectives: North Africa and the Near East
20 April 2015, Rome/Cairo--- This is an important year for the Global Soil Community. The UN’s General Assembly announced 2015 as the International Year of Soils (IYS), prompting experts working on the issues to raise awareness for one of the world’s most important natural resources. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations will lead the international year. And to help move the conversation forward, we invited soil experts to weigh in on the issues affecting specific regions.
