Harmonized World Soil Database - FAO/IIASA/ISRIC/ISSCAS/JRC (Version 1.0) (DVD)

This DVD combines recently collected vast volumes of regional and national updates of soil information with the information already contained within the 1:5,000,000 scale FAO-UNESCO Digital Soil Map of the World, into a new comprehensive Harmonized World Soil Database (HWSD). The HWSD contributes sound scientific knowledge for planning sustainable expansion of agricultural production and for guiding policies to address emerging land competition issues concerning food, energy and biodiversity. This is of critical importance for rational natural resource management and making progress towards achieving food security and sustainable agricultural development, especially with regard to the threats of global climate change and the need for adaptation and mitigation. For policy makers, planners and experts. [System requirements: Minimum requirements are a PC with 1 GHz Pentium III processor or better, and 2 GB of hard disk space.
