International Union of Soil Sciences
The International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS) is the global union of soil scientists. The objectives of the IUSS are to promote all branches of soil science, and to support all soil scientists across the world in the pursuit of their activities. This website provides information for IUSS members and those interested in soil science.
The FAO Conference in June 2013 unanimously endorsed World Soil Day on 5th December and requested the 68th UNGA to have it officially adopted.
