Item 2. Endorsement of the agenda and review of the work performed since the first SEALNET meeting

  1. 1. Review of the work performed since the first SEALNET meeting Ms. Lucrezia Caon GSP Secretariat Lucrezia.caon@fao.org
  2. 2. Established in December 2012to improve soil governance and promote sustainable soil management
  3. 3. The Global Soil Partnership is an interactive, responsive and voluntary partnership, open to governments, regional organizations, institutions and other stakeholders at various levels. It includes two types of partnership: •GSP partners which come from a wide range of institutions such as Governmental Organizations, Universities, Civil institutions, Research centers, Soil science societies, UN agencies, NGOs, Private companies, Farmer associations, Donors, etc. 303 partners on October 2018 •GSP national focal points designed by FAO members countries (partners by default to the GSP). Collate and distribute relevant communications, information material and invitations to meetinfs and consultations, received from the GSPSecretariat to the most appropriate government authorities and/or national institutions, as well as any other relevant body not already registered as a GSP partner, dealing with some matters within theircountry.
  4. 4. The Plenary Assembly constitutes the decision making body of the Global Soil Partnership. It embraces all the GSP partners in a yearly meeting to review and prioritize GSP actions while facilitating a balanced regional decision-making process.
  5. 5. The Global Soil Partnership Secretariat is the coordination and facilitation body in charge of facilitating the implementation of the GSP actions through its regional partnerships and networks. The GSP is hosted by FAO in Rome, Italy in view of its global mandate.
  6. 6. TheIntergovernmental TechnicalPanelon Soils(ITPS)is composed of 27 top soil experts representing all the regions of theworld. TheITPShavethe followingfunctions: • provide scientific and technical advice on global soil issues primarily to the GSPand in relation to specific requests submitted by global or regional institutions. • advocate for the inclusion of sustainablesoil management into different development agendas. • review and follow up on the situation andissues related to soils in the contexts of food security, useand management of natural resources, ecosystem services provision, climate change adaptation and mitigation, and other relevant areas.
  7. 7. TheIntergovernmental TechnicalPanelon Soils(ITPS)is composed of 27 top soil experts representing all the regions of theworld. TheITPS have the followingfunctions: • review and endorse from atechnical viewpoint the GSPPlansof Action. • follow up on the implementation of these Plans of Action with due attention to their impact and contributions to different global policies and initiatives related to sustainable development, MDGs,food security, climate changeadaptation and other subjectmatters. • in exceptional cases,when complex technical matters arise, request the PlenaryAssemblyand the Secretariat to form technical committees aiming to gather specificadvice.
  8. 8. Pillar 1: Promote sustainable management of soil resourcesfor soil protection, conservation and sustainable productivity Pillar 2: Encourage investment, technical cooperation, policy, education, awareness andextension in soil Pillar 3: Promote targeted soil research and development focusing on identified gaps, priorities and synergies with related productive, environmental and social development actions Pillar 4: Information and Data Pillar 5: Harmonization of methods, measurements and indicator for the sustainable management and protection of soil resources
  9. 9. • To strengthen the performance of laboratories towards the development of standards • To harmonize soil analyses in order to make soil information across laboratories, countries and regions comparable and interpretable Launched on 1-2 November 2017: Overall, GLOSOLAN will help achieve the objectives of the 5 Pillars of Action of the GSP
