Human Capital in Soil Science in Africa, Central Asia, and the South Caucasus

30 november 2018
The Eurasian Center for Food Security (ECFS) has brought to the attention of the World Bank the apparently diminishing capacity in soil expertise and stagnant or shrinking job market for soil experts in many regions that suffer from food insecurity. This observation largely reflects the perception of the trend voiced by many African soil science professors and post-graduate students who gathered at the RUFORUM meeting in Cape Town in 2015; it was reiterated at the World Soil Day meetings (2016 and 2017) organized by the ECFS with the support of the World Bank in Moscow. Such a perception of trends in soil science within the education community raises concern for sustainable development in the agricultural, forestry, and nature conservation sectors around the world.
