|Abstract:||This atlas makes available the knowledge contained in the English 'Soil Atlas of Africa' to the 120 million people living in Africa, who speak French as a first or second language. This atlas further develops issues in the English version of the atlas to highlight the value of soil for the well being of both people and the environment across Africa. The publication raises awareness of the critical ecosystem functions and services provided by soil which are under increasing pressure from poor land management practices, climate change and an increasingly urbanized population, compounded by in many areas by rural poverty and social conflict. The atlas describes the factors controlling the geographical distribution of soil across Africa, its strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. A joint initiative of the European Union, the African Union and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the atlas encourages the sustainable use of soil resources in Africa and contributes to the Global Soil Partnership for Food Security, the European year for development and the International Year of Soils.|
