  3. 3. Mandate of the GSP • Improve governance of the limited soil resources to guarantee healthy and productive soils for a food secure world • Goal: be an interactive and reponsive partnership • Develop awareness • Contribute to the development of capacities building on best available science • Facilitate and contribute to the exchange of knowledge and technologies among stakeholders for sustainable management and use of soil resources
  4. 4. Governance of the GSP Partners: Governments, international and regional organizations and institutions  Country focal points Scientific and technical advice, Composed of 27 experts from all regions Plenary Assembly: Decision making body Meets once a year Central America, Caribbean and Mexico Soil Partnership launched in October 2013 7 Regional Soil Partnerships Secretariat: Coordinate and facilitate action implementation, hosted at FAO
  5. 5. Pillars of Action PILLAR 1 SUSTAINABLE SOIL MANAGEMENT PILLAR 2 INVESTMENT, TECH. & SCI. COOPERATION, POLICY, EDUCATION, AWARENESS AND EXTENSION IN SOIL PILLAR 3 RESEARCH PILLAR 4 SOIL DATA AND INFORMATION PILLAR 5 HARMONIZATION

  9. 9. Goals of Training on Digital SOC Mapping • Train national specialists, who commit to the finalization of the respective national maps until 30 September 2017 • Data harmonization • Strengthen technical knowledge for prediction and uncertainty estimation of spatial distribution of SOC and its relation to environmental covariates • establish a plan for each country according to their needs to follow up the finalization of the national SOC maps and the regional SOC map for Central America, the Caribbean and Mexico…and beyond!
  10. 10. Decisions from Plenary Assembly • Countries with no SOC data should be supported with the best available and reliable data sources unless they explicitly wish not to contribute to the GSOCmap • Endorsements: • GSP Soil Data Policy • Establishment of the Global Soil Information System • Establishment of the International Network of Black Soils • ISRIC appointed as GSP Soil Data Facility until Dec 2020 • Neil McKenzie from CSRIO, Australia appointed as INSII Chair until 2019 • ITPS term prolonged to three years
