ASU representation in the Global Symposium on Soil Organic Carbon (GSOC17) at FAO in Rome


Recently Dr. Zita Kriaučiūnienė participated in The Global Symposium on Soil Organic Carbon (GSOC17). It was the biggest scientific meeting, held over three days at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy, on 21–23 March 2017 with 488 participants from 111 countries representing all geographical regions and countries of the world. The aim of the GSOC17 is to review the role of soils and soil organic carbon in the context of climate change and sustainable development and build scientific evidence that could be assessed in the Assessment Reports. More information about GSOC17:

During Symposium was organised meeting of Global Research Alliance (GRA) to discuss “Soil Carbon Sequestration” Flagship Taskforce. Since 2016 ASU is member of GRA. The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases was launched in December 2009 and now has 47 member countries from all regions of the world. The Alliance is focused on research, development and extension of technologies and practices that will help deliver ways to grow more food (and more climate-resilient food systems) without growing greenhouse gas emissions.
