    The Global Symposium on Soil Biodiversity outcome document highlights scientific evidence on the status of soil biodiversity, its impacts, and an agenda for action in the framework of achieving the SDGs. The recommendations presented in this document aim to support the development of policies and actions to encourage the full use of soil biodiversity in the various land-use sectors. The Global Symposium on Soil Biodiversity was held virtually on the FAO zoom platform from 19-22 April 2021. It was attended by over 5 000 participants representing more than 160 countries, including representatives of FAO members, organizing institutions, academia, research institutions, the private sector, civil society, and farmers, as well as land users working on soil biodiversity and related fields. This document is also based on the Report of the State of Knowledge of Soil Biodiversity: Status, Challenges and Potentialities, and is complemented by a book of proceedings, which presents extended abstracts of the various parallel sessions presented during the symposium.
