ISRIC - World Soil Information
A Global Project
Knowledge of the world’s soil resources is fragmented and dated. There is a need for accurate, up-to-date, and
spatially referenced soil information as frequently demanded by many stakeholders, including policymakers, the
climate change community, farmers, other land users, and scientists. This need coincides with an enormous leap in technologies that allows for accurate collection and prediction of soil properties for pressing issues such as food security, climate change, water scarcity, biodiver-sity conservation, and urban sprawl.
