  • The 70th anniversary of the United Nations is an opportunity to reflect – to look back on the UN’s history and take stock of its enduring achievements. It is also an opportunity to spotlight where the UN – and the international community as a whole – needs to redouble its efforts to meet current and future challenges across the three pillars of its work: peace and security, development, and human rights.

  • The World Soil Day (WSD) campaign aims to connect people with soils and raise awareness on their critical importance in our lives.

    The WSD 2015 will be celebrated on the 4th of December at FAO headquarters in Rome and FAO regional offices. National events will also be organized.

    FAO encourages those interested to regularly check the map of WSD2015 events at http://www.fao.org/globalsoilpartnership/world-soil-day/events/en/ and/or register their event here. This year, the theme will be “Soils a solid ground for life”.
