​​Soils4Africa project kicks off (September 2, 2020)

A 2-day meeting (September 1-2, 2020) marked the kickoff of the Soils4Africa project. In line with COVID-19-related measures across the world, the meeting was virtual. Project partners thrashed out details related to modalities of the project's implementation. Work has already begun on preparation of 'use cases,' or profiles of active/potential soil information users from various sectors (land management, soil research, agriculture, agribusinesses, etc.). These profiles will inform the choice of indicators in the Soil Information System (SIS)​, and various aspects of its usability. (More information on this will be available soon)
