World Soil Day 2016

World Soil Day 2016

The World Soil Day (WSD) campaign aims to connect people with soils and raise awareness on their critical importance in our lives. Under the leadership of the Kingdom of Thailand and within the framework of the "Global Soil Partnership", FAO has supported the formal establishment of the World Soil Day as a global awareness-raising platform.
In December 2013, the 68th UN General Assembly declared 5 December as the World Soil Day.
The WSD 2016 will be celebrated on 5 December at FAO headquarters in Rome, FAO regional offices and through national and local events.

The theme for WSD 2016 is 'Soils and pulses, a symbiosis for life'.

In Moscow, the World Soil Day was celebrated at the Russian State Agrarian University - Moscow Timiryazev Agricultural Academy (RSAU – MTAA) on 5 December.
