The FAO Global Soil Partnership
The Global Soil Partnership was founded in 2013 in the framework of the FAO (Food and Agriculture
Organisation of the UN). Their pillars of action are soil management, awareness raising, research,
information and data as well as international harmonisation. More than 200 organisations are partners in
the Global Soil Partnership. An important accomplishment is the proclamation of the International Year of
Soils in 2015.
