At the 68th UN General Assembly, 2015 was declared the International Year of Soils (IYS): a year to raise awareness at international, regional and national levels about fundamental role of soils for human life. ICBA is joining FAO in celebrating IYS with participants from several organizations from the UAE.

Since its inception in 1999, ICBA has been working with partners from over 35 countries in different regions on raising awareness about soils through building capacity of NARS staff, and introducing sustainable soil management practices for crop production in marginal environments.

ICBA and FAO are holding a joint seminar in the context of the IYS and the status of the world’s soil resources.
