Global Soil Organic Carbon Sequestration Potential Map – GSOCseq v.1.1
This document presents the technical details of the first ever country-driven Global Soil Organic Carbon Sequestration Potential Map (GSOCseq). This map allows for the estimation of top (0–30 cm) soil organic carbon sequestration potential in agricultural areas under a business as usual and three sustainable soil management scenarios. The Global Soil Organic Carbon Sequestration Potential Map (GSOCseq) stands out as a game-changing program aimed at bridging this divide by raising technical expertise on SOC sequestration potential modeling and mapping while relying on a uniquely participatory and iterative process. The GSOCseq v1.1 was developed based on the submissions of national experts appointed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Member Nations. Each of the appointed National Experts generated national maps following a bottom-up approach that was facilitated and coordinated by the Secretariat of FAO’s Global Soil Partnership (GSP).
