The European Soil Partnership is part of a global network of eight regional soil partnerships (see FAO). This network has been founded as a multi-lateral initiative by FAO member countries and many other governmental and non-governmental institutions.

The ESP sees itself as an umbrella network for various European initiatives and actions, at the level of regions, countries, EU and its neighbours, and it advocates for their visibility and contributions in the global soil protection movement.
