Training Workshop on Soil Salinity Management in Kharkiv, Ukraine

Soil salinization is one of the major types of soil degradation identified in the Eurasian region that hampers sustainable development and the achievement of food security. In order to address this and increase the sustainable management of saline soils, coordinated efforts are needed between different stakeholders and countries in the region. This includes the need to master advanced technologies and sharing accumulated experience in managing saline soils for wider application to not only manage saline soils, but also prevent soil salinization. 

A first step in sharing knowledge on soil salinity management was the development of the “Handbook for saline soil management” which is currently available in Russian and will later be available in English. This handbook will now be used as the main training material for a 1-week training course on soil salinity management to be held at the National Scientific Center “Institute for Soil Science and Agrochemistry Research named after O.N. Sokolovsky” in Kharkiv, Ukraine from 25 to 29 September 2017. The training will be attended by representatives from countries in the Eurasian region as part of the implementation of capacity development activities under the Eurasian Soil Partnership Implementation Plan.
