Global Soil Week

The Global Soil Week is conceived collaboratively with our partner organisations: the European Commission (EC), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and the German Federal Environmental Agency (UBA).

More than 450 participants from around the world took part in the most recent Global Soil Week in 2013. The next Global Soil Week will take place on April 19-23, 2015, in Berlin, Germany.
