With a mere seven percent of Tajikistan's land suitable for agriculture, soil erosion and degradation pose significant threats to sustainable farming. To tackle these threats, Tajikistan recently embarked on the Global Soil Doctors Programme, an innovative initiative designed to improve sustainable soil management. The programme implements farmer-to-farmer training, supporting and strengthening the capacities of farmers who are prominent in their community for their good knowledge of soil management while supporting national governments in addressing the needs of their rural communities. Developed in a collaborative effort with key stakeholders in Tajikistan, the Institute of Soil Science and Agrochemistry (national promoter for the Global Soil Doctors' Programme), the State Institution of Agricultural Entrepreneurship Development Project Management Unit (SI AED PMU),  FAO Tajikistan, and FAO's Global Soil Partnership (GSP), the programme demonstrated a genuine commitment to increasing crop yields, productivity, livelihoods and safeguarding the environment.   


The Global Soil Partnership bids farewell with affection and great appreciation to two eminent soil scientists who greatly contributed to the work of the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils and the Global Soil Partnership and have left us this year: Prof. Jaume Porta Casanellas, Emeritus Professor of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry at the Higher Technical School of Agricultural Engineering at the University of Lleida, and Dr. Juan Antonio Comerma Gutiérrez, member of the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils during 2015-2017 and senior researcher at the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Agronómicas in Maracay (Venezuela) for more than 30 years.


Healthy soils play a pivotal role in climate change mitigation and adaptation. Focusing on increasing soil carbon and improving soil health on agricultural and degraded lands, the RECSOIL Initiative engages with farmers to address site-specific soil threats through sustainable soil management interventions.
