The 5-step roadmap presented below is intended as a high level overview of activities that would need to be implemented to establish national-level soil and landscape information systems over a planning period of circa 18-24 months. The timeline and cost ranges at the bottom of each step are indicative based on standard AfSIS protocols but would depend on specific national requirements and implementation capacities. Steps 3 & 4 can be carried out in parallel over the initial 18-24 month period.
