About the Soil Data Facility and the Global Soil Partnership

Pillar 4 of the GSP addresses the development of a Global Soil Information System and requires the active participation and contribution of national soil information institutions. For this, an International Network of Soil Information Institutions (INSII) has been established. ISRIC, in their new role of Soil Data Facility, will assist the INSII to build national and regional soil information systems and will integrate these by providing a central global soil information system.

ISRIC is proud to be trusted this important role by the Plenary Assembly of GSP and will continue to work closely together with the Pillar 4 Working Group and INSII to contribute to the a sustainable use of the global soil resources.
