    This report summarizes the main findings of a Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP) implemented by the FAO Office for the Near East and North Africa (NENA) and its Global Soil Partnership (GSP), focusing on the political, financial and infrastructural constraints that are common to the soil laboratories surveyed. Through this project, FAO opened the discussion on data quality and harmonization in the NENA region. The availability of reliable and harmonized soil data remains a challenge that affects decision-making at the national and field level, and the implementation of coordinated actions on the practice of sustainable soil management in the region. Recognizing this challenge, FAO and its GSP assessed the capacities and needs of 34 soil laboratories belonging to the Ministry of Agriculture in ten countries of the NENA region from October 2020 to April 2023. By generating data, laboratories play a role that influences the entire decision-making chain on soil management. The provision of support to soil laboratories indirectly supports farmers, extension services and policymakers, and strengthens national databases for country reporting on international agreements such as the Sustainable Development Goals.
