Healthy soils are central to delivering resilience to climate change and natural disasters, meeting our emission reduction targets, growing our agriculture industry, and securing human health, food and water security, biodiversity and economic growth. The National Soil Strategy (the Strategy) is a 20-year strategy that sets out how Australia will value, manage and improve its soil. The Strategy has been developed in collaboration with state and territory governments, the National Soils Advocate and other major stakeholders in soil science and land management. The goals and objectives in the Strategy are aimed at restoring and protecting soil nationally, by driving collaborative and coordinated on-ground action, research, education, monitoring and governance. All levels of government, industry, research institutions, private soil science practitioners and land managers have a role to play in caring for our soil resources.
