Training on digital soil mapping (Windhoek, 2-3 November 2016).

ISRIC trained 15 land resources management professionals from Namibia in digital soil mapping methods for the purpose of developing of a soil organic carbon (SOC) map of the Otjozondjupa Region. Otjozondjupa is a pilot area for Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) Target Setting. Currently, baselines are set of four LDN indictors. The current status of SOC stock is among these. The two-day training was part of a three-day workshop in Windhoek, Namibia on Land Degradation Assessment Methods. The training was organized by CIAT and facilitated by GIZ and the Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism.
