CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: Global Soil Week
The third Global Soil Week will take place in Berlin from 19 to 23 April 2015
Several initiatives and political processes related to soils and land will converge in 2015. The negotiations for the Post-2015 Development Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be in full swing. The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2015 the International Year of Soils. And the United Nations Climate Change Conference will work towards achieving a global agreement on climate. All of these events are a special opportunity to raise awareness about the important role of soils and land for sustainable development.
The 3rd Global Soil Week 2015 invites all stakeholders to join forces to encourage sustainable soil management and responsible land governance at global, regional and local level and jointly put soils and land on the new sustainable development agenda.
