Global Soil Week 2017!

The Global Soil Week 2017 aims to contribute to the successful implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, by providing an integrating perspective of land and soils!

This year, the Global Soil Week will focus on the High-level Political Forum 2017 theme: “Eradicating Poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world”.

The annual event will contribute with data and other forms of knowledge complementary to the SDG indicators, and serve as a bridge to empower different actors to share their priorities on the SDG implementation.

More specifically, partners of the Global Soil Week intend to:

  • Account for trade-offs and seek synergies between the SDGs.
  • Move from knowledge production and sharing to learning processes that feed into action.
  • Empower actors to be able to contribute to follow up and review processes of the 2030 Agenda.
  • Increase the ownership of the 2030 Agenda.
  • Address critical pressure points, namely: (i) Net resource pressures; (ii) Consumption and production patterns; (iii) Access and rights to resources.
  • A report to reflect on the review and knowledge exchange and communication methodologies applied at the GSW 2017.
