The Global Symposium on Salt-affected Soils (GSAS21) “Halt soil salinization, boost soil productivity” will be held in a virtual format from 20 to 22 October 2021.

This science-policy meeting is organized by FAO’s Global Soil Partnership (GSP), the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS), together with the Science Policy Interface of United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (SPI-UNCCD), the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS), the International Center on Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA), the International Network of Salt-Affected Soils (INSAS), and the Global Framework on Water Scarcity in Agriculture (WASAG).

The main objectives of the Symposium are to share knowledge on salinity prevention, management, and adaptation and to establish critical connections between science, practice, and policy by facilitating discussion among policy makers, food producers, scientists, and practitioners for sustainable management of salt-affected soils. Keynote presentations will be given by invited leading experts in the field of salt-affected soils management on the following three main themes:

  • Theme 1: Assessment, mapping, and monitoring of salt-affected soils;
  • Theme 2: Integrated soil-water-crop solutions in rehabilitation and management of salt-affected areas;
  • Theme 3: Agenda for action to prevent and rehabilitate salt-affected soils, protect natural saline and sodic soils, and scale-up sustainable soil management practices.

Registration open and free here

Call for Abstracts and Good Practices by 17 September 2021.
