Global Symposium on Soil Pollution (FAO)

Register until 8 April 2018 to the Global Symposium on Soil Pollution (GSOP18) at FAO headquarters, Rome, from 2 to 4 May 2018. Outcomes will provide scientific evidence to support actions and decisions to prevent and reduce soil pollution for increased food security and nutrition, and ecosystem services, and promote the remediation of polluted sites.

The Global Symposium on Soil Pollution (GSOP18) will take place at FAO headquarters from 2 to 4 May 2018. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization and its Global Soil Partnership (GSP), Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS), together with the Secretariats of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions, UN Environment and World Health Organization (WHO), agreed to explore the option of a jointly organized Global Symposium on Soil Pollution as a common platform to discuss and elaborate the latest information on the status, trends and actions (both scientific and political) on soil pollution and its threatful consequences on human health, food safety and the environment.

The symposium is the first step in implementing the Voluntary Guidelines for Sustainable Soil Management in terms of preventing and reducing harmful substances in soil as a way to maintain healthy soils and food safety in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals. Specifically, the symposium outcomes should provide scientific evidence to support actions and decisions to prevent and reduce soil pollution for increased food security and nutrition, and ecosystem services, and promote the remediation of polluted sites.
