Description: 

World Soil Day 2021 (#WorldSoilDay) and its campaign "Halt soil salinization, boost soil productivity" aims to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being by addressing the growing challenges in soil management, fighting soil salinization, increasing soil awareness and encouraging societies to improve soil health.

The virtual celebration will be an opportunity to forge collaboration among Member States, relevant United Nations organizations and various stakeholders on the ground to scale up 
their contributions to the work on soil, against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic which has exacerbated the pre-existing challenges of soil salinization and sodification. 

The virtual celebration of the World Soil Day 2021 is organized by The Permanent Missions of the Kingdom of Thailand, the Republic of Ecuador, the Kingdom of Lesotho and the Russian Federation to the United Nations, together with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification.
