World Soil Day Celebration #WorldSoilDay
HALT SOIL SALINIZATION, BOOST SOIL PRODUCTIVITY
World Soil Day (WSD), 5 December is the United Nations special date dedicated to celebrating healthy soils for a healthy life. This year’s campaign, “Halt soil salinization, boost soil productivity” calls on each and every one of us to focus on salt-affected soils.
The WSD ceremony will be held virtually on 3 December with the participation of Dr Qu Dongyu – FAO Director-General and thousands of soil enthusiasts. Artistic performances and keynotes will animate the ceremony. The winners of the Glinka World Soil Prize and King Bhumibol WSD award will also be announced. An interactive quiz will put your knowledge of salt-affected soils to the test.
