15. Wrap-up presentation

  1. 1. Training on “Digital Soil Organic Carbon Mapping: towards the development of national soil organic carbon stock maps” - WRAP UP - By Lucrezia Caon
  2. 2. OUTCOME ACTIVITIES OUTPUTS Soil information systems of majority of ASP members established and updated (involves Pillar 4 products: polygon maps, soil profiles, grids for SoilSTAT) 4.1.1 All ASP countries establish national soil information systems and representative databases National Soil Information System (legacy data and continuing inventories; may require additional manuals/support through technical cooperation) 4.1.2 Contribute to filling national and global knowledge gaps about the distribution of soil carbon and its impact on climate change National Soil Organic Carbon Map based on GSP Guideline 4.1.3 Harmonize the various national soil polygon maps of Asia based on GSP agreed classification system Soil Atlas of Asia Soil data sharing policy agreed and Asian soil portal established 4.2.1 Adopt the Open Data Policy and Ethics espoused by GSP ASP Open Data Policy 4.2.2 ASP members transform their data into web services and provide it as discovery and download services National soil information institution’s homepage with subpage on Soil Information System and Map Portal 4.2.3 Establish the Asian Soil Partnership Portal Asian Soil Partnership Homepage Soil status monitoring system conceptualized and initially tested by economically advanced members 4.3.1 Select soil benchmark data for soil description and land degradation monitoring purposes based on proposals by site selection in each ASP member country and evaluated using pedo-transfer functions or other models to develop spatial layers for soil indicators Number of sites established for monitoring National indicator data sets for SoilSTAT 4.3.2 Prototype national soil monitoring established with shared processed data SoilSTAT at Asian Soil Partnership Homepage Geo-spatial data management capacity of member soil information institutions enhanced 4.4.1 Training on soil survey, classification and mapping for national soil institute without national soil map National Soil Map of Bhutan 4.4.2 Training on soil organic carbon mapping 1 regional training 4.4.3 Training on soil grid production 2 regional trainings Rewind
  3. 3. • to know about the fertility of the soils (SOC could be used to monitor soil health); • to report to the different conventions and SDGs (e.g. SDG 15.3.1 on soil degradation); • to make decisions on climate change; • this will help to develop national information systems. This activity ultimately benefits countries by building their capacity on soil assessment and monitoring, and developing policies on soil, which would rely on the use of reliable and updated soil information in line with international standards. Why developing national Soil Organic Carbon Maps?
  4. 4. …global maps have been so far developed without consulting/involving countries…is this the trend you want to keep on? Is this what you want?
  5. 5. …global maps have been so far developed without consulting/involving countries…is this the trend you want to keep on? Is this what you want?
  6. 6. National SOC map exists YesNo GSP specifications are fulfilled Yes No recalculate Product accomplished: deliver to GSP secretariat Produce new map with own capacity Compile national SOC measurements Yes No Share national SOC data with GSP secretariat to organise the uscaling to 1 km grid Yes 1 2 3 Country-driven approach
  7. 7. • We do NOT want your data but the national SOC map only!! Your governments already agreed on developing and sharing the map at the GSP Plenary Assembly 2016 However…please fill in the survey at SwRjSXSsHtWMA-7HsJHsuSJ9HZDvT3Eqr4TgTe7koo/edit?usp=sharing If any letter from FAO is required, please indicate who we should address the letter to. NOTE: The IP policy is under development so that you can comment to it and accomodate it to your needs. The final version of the document to be ready by June 2017. Deadlines 31 August 2017: send your national SOC maps to the GSP Secretariat If the time required 5 December (World Soil Day) 2017: launch of the global SOC map
  8. 8. What if you fail to submit your national map? • Your country will be left blank in the global map • Notification to be send to your national authorities …but we want to help you not to fail !! ….
  9. 9. All the material of the training will be made available online (GSP website) and sent you by email FAO experts available to support you For technical issues Mr. Yusuf Yigini, Phone number +39 06570 53772 Mr. Rainer Baritz, Phone number +39 06570 56125 Skype contact available on request For any other issue Ms. Lucrezia Caon, Phone number +39 06570 53836
  10. 10. A special thank to Dr. Ate Poortinga from for his participation as trainer. More info on him at Please DO NOT contact him for developing your national SOC maps!
