On peut se procurer les Cahiers techniques de la FAO auprès des points de vente des publications de la FAO, ou en s’adressant directement au Groupe des ventes et de la commercialisation, FAO, Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 00100 Rome, Italie.

Ce Bulletin pédologique contient un ensemble de directives pour l’utilisation de la méthodologie du zonage agro-écologique de la FAO (ZAE). Les directives sont conçues pour aider les spécialistes des ressources en terres, les planificateurs, les gestionnaires, ou toute autre personne, intéressés à l’utilisation des terres, et qui souhaitent entreprendre des études ZAE aux niveaux régional, national ou subnational. Ce bulletin décrit les concepts et méthodes ZAE, les séquences d’activités ainsi que les outils nécessaires aux études ZAE. Il fournit un guide permettant de mener par étapes une étude ZAE, et inclut des applications simples et de pointe, de même que des exemples tirés de l’expérience acquise par la FAO dans divers pays.
