This document reviews the present availability of soil information from legacy maps and reports and from ongoing Digital Soil Mapping efforts. The review work presented in this document came from various resources: regional meetings, technical reports, books, journal articles, organization and personal websites, etc.

The information on national soil data comes from regional workshops in which national experts presented the status of soil information in their countries.

This catalogue was prepared in the context of the User Needs Survey on Sustainable Land and Water Management (SLM) launched in March 2013. It summarizes the key KM and DS methods, tools and products on SLM, produced over the last 30 years by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), its Land Degradation Assessment in Drylands Programme (LADA) and the World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT).

INTERNATIONAL LINKAGES NETWORKS AND COLLABORATION GLOBAL

  • World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT) Network of International soil and water conservation specialists who are compiling a detailed database on the advantages and disadvantages of particular conservation approaches and why they have been adopted or rejected by local users.
    (http://www.wocat.net/)
  • The Global Network on Integrated Soil Management for Sustainable Use of Salt Affected Soils In the light of the related requirements for FAO's assistance to member governments one of FAO's technical cooperation efforts is the establishment of this ongoing Global Network on Integrated Soil Management for Sustainable Use of Salt Affected Soils. Presently 18 countries are participating in the Network from different regions in the world. Collaborative projects have been initiated with national institutes in these countries to develop management practices for sustainable use of salt affected soils. The Network addresses a wide range of situations such as salinity of swamps and coastal lands, salinity due to intrusion of sea water, salinity due to soil and water mismanagement, and irrigation with saline water. Many success stories were achieved where the locally adopted soil management technologies were widely applied by farmers through Network efforts. The use of several salt tolerant plants were demonstrated in various countries and in desert areas where saline groundwater was applied for irrigation.
