Revised World Soil Charter Survey

9th March 2018

Unanimously endorsed at the 39th FAO Conference in June 2015, the revised World Soil Charter (WSC) contains guidelines for action by stakeholders at all levels.

The purpose of the revised WSC is to inform decision-making at the global scale and foster the implementation of sustainable soil management (SSM) at the regional/local levels. The revised WSC updates the vision and guiding principles endorsed in the first version, published in 1981, that no longer reflected the world soil situation and therefore needed to be updated.

The Global Soil Partnership has launched a short survey to assess activities by and within GSP partners in support of the principles of the revised World Soil Charter. 

The outcomes of the survey will be presented at the 6th GSP Plenary Assembly (June 2018) and will be used to evaluate the impact of GSP initiatives and plan future activities. This survey is the first of a series of reviews of country performance in implementing the actions of the revised WSC.

Please note the deadline for completing the survey is 8th April 2018
