Soil salinity

Dear HORTILEA members,

I have a short input request, as I would like to quantify the problem of salinisation for farmers in Kenya, but cannot find any good research or statistics on the topic.

How many farmers, farms or % of arable land is/are affected by saline soils (caused anthropogenic factors) in Kenya?

Many thanks!
Judith

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has held the prestigious “Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development” to promote the international exchange of ideas regarding green solutions since 2009. The award, whose patron is Minister Anja Karliczek, honours 25 young researchers from around the world each year. The winners come from various scientific disciplines and are recognised for their outstanding achievements in making our societies more sustainable. The call is open to all disciplines.

The Green Talents are selected by a high-ranking jury of German experts and are granted unique access to the elite of the country’s sustainability research field. This includes:
• An invitation to Germany in 2018 to participate in a fully funded two-week Science Forum. While touring Germany, top locations will open their doors to the Green Talents and offer them an exclusive insight into their facilities and projects.
• A chance to present themselves and their work in personal discussions held as part of individual appointments with experts of their choice (during the two-week Science Forum).
• A second invitation to Germany in 2018 for a fully funded research stay of up to three months. At an inspiring location of their choice, the Green Talents will gain new experiences and advance their professional careers while establishing long-lasting partnerships.
• Exclusive access to the “Green Talents network” of currently 207 high potentials in sustainable development from over 57 countries.

Applicants must meet the following requirements:
• Enrolment in a master’s or PhD programme or a degree (master’s/PhD) completed no more than three years before the end of the application process
• Strong focus on sustainable development and an interdisciplinary approach
• Proven excellent command of English
