World Soil Day 2022: See Benefits of Healthy Soil, from Nutrition to Economy

World Soil Day 2022: The International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS), in 2002, proposed a day to celebrate the importance of soil in forming the ecosystem and our lives. Therefore, to encourage this idea, the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United States (FAO)established the international day of World Soil Day under the leadership of the Kingdom of Thailand within the Global Soil Partnership. At the 68th United Nations General Assembly, the FAO Conference urged that World Soil Day be officially adopted. Therefore, the UNGA on December 05, 2014, designated World Soil Day and since then this day is being observed worldwide every year. 

World Soil Day 2022 Theme

The theme for World Soil Day 2022 is "Soil: Where Food Begins". The theme of this year emphasises maintaining healthy ecosystems and well-being.
