The GSBI is an official partner of the Global Soil Partnership (GSP)

The GSBI works with the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to promote an assessment of global soil biodiversity.

In September 2018, the GSBI requested actions from the Intergovernmental Science‑Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) regarding the integration of soil biodiversity into ongoing assessments of biological diversity, and the promotion of a global assessment of soil biodiversity.


The European Commission Joint Research Center is a founding organization of the GSBI, and collaborated with the GSBI to produce the Global Soil Biodiversity Atlas (May, 2016)
