  1. 1. Liesl Wiese Pillar 1 Implementation Plan
  2. 2. Pillar 1… … implementation on the ground Identify appropriate SSM practices, adapt them, implement at appropriate scales Createanenablingenvironment  Technical and political barriers  Capacity development  Monitor SSM implementation  Ensure balanced soil fertility management More ha under SSM
  3. 3. How does Pillar 1 relate to other Pillars? Pillar 2 Pillar 3 Pillar 4 Pillar 5 Pillar 1 SSM Implemented Human, capital, political, financial resources Remove adoption barriers Provide authoritative data to assess progress in SSM implementation Key science and socio- economic data Bridge knowledge gaps Improve and standardize methods for reliable SSM adoption indicators Invest, coop, policy, edu, awareness, extension Data and information Harmonization Research
  4. 4. Pillar 1 Global Implementation Plan P1 GIP Process Timing P1 writing team Plan of Action: 2nd Plenary Assembly 2014 P1 GIP initiated 13 Feb 2018 (2 months) • Based on recent GSP developments and priorities / RIPs ITPS Endorsement: 30 April 2018 Implementation 2018 – 2022 (5 years) 4 Activities GSP Secretariat ITPS Pillar 1 Chair Pillar 1 Regional Chairs
  5. 5. SSM best practices Estimated budget: USD 1,020,000 • Bulk budget to support regional implementation • Foundation of most other activities Global guidelines to test soil management practices against SSM definition Global database of SSM best practicesRefine guidelines to regional / national context Regional and local sub- datasets of SSM best practices ITPS Guidance Document on Assessment of SSM
  6. 6. Regional maps of successful SSM 1. Identify regional/national projects of successful SSM (use guidelines) iSQAPER Pedoclimatic zones Corine LandUse Soil threat 2. Map projects based on: Location Aerial extent Specific site characteristics (regional) Land use Pedoclimatic zones Biomes Land zoning Soil threats Others Map metadata: • Site characteristics • SSM practices • Barriers • Stakeholders 3. Monitor areas under SSM: increasing / decreasing (Link to Pillar 4) Estimated budget: USD 325,000 To be supplemented by national / regional contributions • Showcase success
  7. 7. Implement WSC and VGSSM 1. Assess performance of GSP partners against WSC (done) 2. Regional and national awareness and capacity development workshops on VGSSM 3. Develop technical manuals for managing the 10 soil threats i.e. Guidelines on soil organic matter management 4. Link to Pillar 2: • Capacity development on SSM practices • Integrate soil governance for soil protection Estimated budget: USD 275,000 Requires national/regional contributions • Provision of workshop facilities • Manpower – workshop arrangement and implementation
  8. 8. Implement SSM projects 1. Develop comprehensive project proposals 2. Implement SSM project in all regions a. Up-scaling existing projects b. New project concepts  Barriers to adoption  Develop policy support  Capacity development (before/during)  Needs assessment to adapt SSM practices  Knowledge exchange  Develop decision support systems  Monitoring of SSM management impact on soil Estimated budget: USD 15,100,000 • Require active national/regional participation in proposal writing (ownership and local context) • Bulk of the budget for implementation (could be seen as seed funding) Map all new projects
  9. 9. Guidance on assessment of SSM ITPS, May 2018 (Annex to P1 GIP) First step towards assessment of: Economic benefits of SSM for farmers and other land users Goal: Provide guidance on how to assess the sustainability of soil management Soil management is sustainable if the supporting, provisioning, regulating, and cultural services provided by the soil are maintained or enhanced without significantly impairing either the soil functions that enable those services or biodiversity Broadens sustainability assessment to include SM effect on ESS (or nature’s contribution to people, NCP)
  10. 10. Information required to assess SSM 1. Specification of management 2. Identification of threats to ESS, soil function (SF) and biodiversity (BD) 3. Specification of acceptable levels of threats Threats well established for soil functions. Not fully established for ESS. Preliminary list for 3 primary ESS compiled Question to be addressed: What are the acceptable impacts of human use of soil on ESS, soil functions, and biodiversity?
  11. 11. Stages of SSM Assessment 1. Compile information on current or proposed management 2. Identify management-related threats to soil-provided ESS, SF, BD 3. Compile science-based info on acceptable levels of threats 4. Compile local knowledge on acceptable levels of threats. 5. Link current or proposed management to identified threats. 6. Compare probable effects of current or proposed management to acceptable levels of threats. 7. Assess socio-economic and cultural implications of current or proposed management measures. 8. Implement changes to management / overcome barriers to adoption of such changes. 9. Recognition of achievement of sustainability. Certification / Financial rewards Government/NGO/Extension Land managers (with above)
  12. 12. Action by GSP members 1. Support in development of SSM assessment guidelines • In-kind through provision of time of experts • Identification of management practices • Available information on indicators / threat levels 2. Identify and map successful SSM projects • Incentive to showcase national success stories – visibility to donors • Highlight overcoming barriers to adoption – lessons learnt 3. Implement WSC and VGSSM • Organize national workshops • Assess national actions / legislation with VGSSM 4. Implement SSM Projects • Active participation in proposal writing • Provide national context, needs • Take ownership Total budget: USD 16,720,000 Please know and support your focal point.
