Abstract: The protection and the sustainable management of soil resources in Africa are of paramount importance, particularly in the context of the uncertain impact of climate change and the increase pressure of the human activities. This situation requires a demand for up-to-date and relevant soil information as well as the communication of such information to diverse audiences. These challenging issues are illustrated by focusing on two current topics: the use of coarse-resolution remote sensing for producing soil data at regional and continental scales and the Soil Atlas of Africa, an initiative of the European Commission Joint Research Center.
