Kazakhstan, the world’s ninth-largest country, covers an area of 2.72 million square kilometres. Soil health is crucial to the country’s agricultural sector, which has to meet global demands, but currently faces soil carbon loss and soil pollution. To promote soil health, increase soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks, and address soil pollution, the FAO’s Global Soil Partnership (GSP) has taken steps to introduce the Recarbonization of Global Agricultural Soils (RECSOIL) initiative in Kazakhstan. In collaboration with FAO Kazakhstan and the Ministry of Agriculture, the GSP has successfully taken steps towards soil recarbonization and soil pollution remediation through meetings clarifying key actors in soil research and management and Kazakhstan, bilateral discussions with government representatives, and holding two RECSOIL workshops to engage and identify project partners.
