Global Soil Partnership


FAO, through the Global Soil Partnership, is organizing a technical workshop “Managing Living Soilsto review the state of the art in regard to soil management across the world and within each region.

Within the framework of the "Global Soil Partnership", FAO advocates for recognition of the importance of soils for achieving food security, as well as their pivotal role in providing a range of ecosystem services.

An ad-hoc meeting of the Asian Soil Partnership was organized in Tsukuba (Japan) at the margins of the MARCO Symposium (24-27 Sep 2012) by the National Institute for Agro-Environmental Sciences (NIAES) to define a road map that was consolidated through the Tsukuba Statement.

The  Global Soil Partnership was officially endorsed by FAO Committee on Agriculture (COAG) at its 23rd session on 24 May 2012.

The GSP was discussed in depth and country members welcomed the preparatory work done by FAO. 

The preparatory process started with a request by COAG in 2010 for FAO to explore the establishment of the Global Soil Partnership.

The Global Soil Partnership is currently running an online survey in order to get the user’s needs and challenges of global/regional soil data and information.
