The International Association for Promoting Geoethics (IAPG) and the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in May 2023.

Both organizatons agreed that the IUSS and the IAPG are facing a future of challenging soil and geologic resources use and management issues. The IUSS and the IAPG will use their best effort to promote the formal co-operation by obtaining the necessary support for envisaged activities. The partnership generally aims at developing new knowledge, sharing experiences, and distributing knowledge and skills for the benefit of the whole world.

The IUSS is the global union of soil scientists. The objectives of the IUSS are to promote all branches of soil science, and to support all soil scientists across the world in the pursuit of their activities. The IUSS was founded as the International Society of Soil Science (ISSS) on 19th May 1924. The IUSS has been a scientific union member of ICSU (International Council for Science) since 1993. Since the merger of ICSU with the International Social Science Council to form the International Science Council (ISC) in 2018 the IUSS is a member of ISC.

The IUSS will celebrate its centennial with a congress to be held in Florence (Italy) from 19 to 21 May 2024:
