    GSOCmap is the first global soil organic carbon map ever produced through a consultative and participatory process involving member countries, which makes this map totally new and unique. In fact, the map was prepared by member countries, under the guidance of the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils and the Global Soil Partnership Secretariat. Countries agreed on the methodology to produce the map and were trained on modern tools and methodologies to develop national maps. The Global Soil Partnership then gathered all national maps to produce the final product, ensuring a thorough harmonization process. This technical report is a companion report to the GSOCmap V1.2.0. It presents methodologies and process of compiling the Global Soil organic Carbon Map.

    This document presents the technical details of the first-ever country-driven Global Soil Organic Carbon Map (GSOCmap). This map allows the estimation of Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) stocks from 0 to 30 cm. It represents a key contribution to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicator 15.3.1, which defines the area of degraded land. The novelty of this map is the fact that it is the first Global SOC stocks assessment which is produced through a participatory approach. Supported by the GSP-Secretariat, countries developed their capacities and stepped up efforts to compile or collect all available soil information at the national level. This technical report is a companion report to the GSOCmap V1.6.0. It presents methodologies and process of compiling the Global Soil organic Carbon Map (GSOCmap).

    The Global Soil Partnership (GSP) and the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS) launched a global endeavor to develop the Global Soil Organic Carbon map (GSOCmap) using a country-driven approach as part of the Global Soil Information System (GLOSIS). GSP provides technical support and on-the-job training to most countries to produce national SOC maps according to standardized specifications.
