When these pollutants enter the food chain, they are a threat to food security, water supplies, rural livelihoods and human health.”Soil contamination is an emerging and diverse problem, but in order to solve this problem, we need to learn more, promote sustainable soil management, increase collaboration and create evidence,” said Ronald Vargas, responsible for the FAO soil and Secretary of the GSP meeting.

Making food and healthy ecosystems for everyone. “In the open session, in order to facilitate the exchange of information, three new projects were approved, including: “The Global Soil Information System; the Global Soil Laboratory Network, in order to measure harmonized and standardized in countries; and the International Black Sea Network In order to increase the fertility knowledge of agricultural soils, considering the carbon content of the soil. “
