حول اليوم العالمي للتربة

يعقد اليوم العالمي للتربة سنويا في 5 ديسمبر من كل عام كوسيلة لتركيز الاهتمام على أهمية التربة الصحية والدعوة إلى  الإدارة المستدامة لموارد التربة.

أوصى الاتحاد الدولي لعلوم التربة في عام 2002 بيوم دولي للاحتفال بالتربة. تحت قيادة مملكة تايلند وفي إطار الشراكة العالمية من أجل التربة، دعمت منظمة الأغذية والزراعة الإنشاء الرسمي لليوم العالمي للتربة كمنصة توعية عالمية. وأقر مؤتمر المنظمة بالإجماع اليوم العالمي للتربة في يونيو 2013 وطلب اعتماده رسميا في الدورة الثامنة والستين للجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة. وفي ديسمبر 2013، استجابت الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة بتخصيص يوم 5 ديسمبر 2014 رسمياً كأول يوم عالمي للتربة.


رابط إلى قرار  A/RES/68/232

The date of 5 December for WSD was chosen because it corresponds with the official birthday of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the King of Thailand, who officially sanctioned the event.

In 2016 this day was officially recognized in memory and with respect for this beloved monarch who passed away in October 2016 after seven decades as head of state.

World Soil Day 2015

FAO was nominated to implement the International Year of Soil (IYS) 2015, within the framework of the Global Soil Partnership and in collaboration with FAO member countries. The theme for World Soil Day 2015 was "Healthy soils for a healthy life".

Special focus was placed on increasing awareness and understanding of the importance of soil for food security and essential ecosystem functions. Soils are a critical component of the natural system and a vital contributor to human wellbeing through its contribution to food, water and energy security and mitigation of biodiversity loss. It was celebrated by the global community of 60 000 soil scientists charged with the responsibility of generating and communicating soil knowledge for the common good of all.

World Soil Day 2014

"The soils community could really contribute to the efforts of food security, hunger eradication, climate change adaptation, poverty reduction and sustainable development"

This is how FAO and the GSP secretariat started their words of welcome during the first official celebration of World Soil Day... Soil specialists, politicians, leading experts, and top officials from all across the globe convened at FAO headquarters to emphasize the importance of soils beyond the soil science community.

World Soil Day 2013 & 2012

Recognizing the importance of soils, under the framework of the Global Soil Partnership and with the unanimous support of FAO members, the 37th FAO Conference endorsed 5th December as WSD and requested the UN General Assembly to provide its final endorsement. Since then the soils community has an important opportunity as soils are placed high in global discussions.
