Description

The causes of salinity and sodicity, which vary between countries and regions, need to be identified, assessed and monitored carefully so that they can be managed and controlled. There is a need for practical and cost-effective methodologies for assessing, monitoring and mapping the extent and distribution of salt-affected soils; for identifying the causes and sources of the problem; and for choosing management options and evaluating the effectiveness of those options. The objective of this expert consultation was to exchange experiences with data collection and analysis for the assessment and monitoring of salinity and sodicity, with particular emphasis on practical applications at local, national, regional and global levels. Abstracts of the papers presented are included in this report, while full papers are included in the accompanying CD.
