Third Global Soil Week

19-23 April 2015. Berlin, Germany. The Third Global Soil Week (GSW) – a multi-stakeholder platform for sustainable soil management brought together policy makers, scientists, representatives of civil society and the private sector, farmers and artists in an inclusive and transparent process to address the theme “Soil: the substance of Transformation.”
Participants discussed issues regarding soil and land and their links to food security, rural development, growth, energy production, and the competition for land resources.

Held during the 2015 UN International Year of Soils, the event contributed to the discussions on the post-2015 Development Agenda, in particular with regard to food security, as well as the role of soil management for climate change mitigation.
