Our Objective

The objective of the Sustainable Soils Alliance is to effect an improved political and public understanding and appreciation of soil that will lead to a reversal of land degradation and the restoration of soils to health within one generation.

We will do this by bringing together the full community of stakeholders that have an interest in soil management to debate the scale and nature of the problem, agree the appropriate indicators and determining factors and identify the relevant policy mechanisms and levers for reform. 

On this basis we will engage media and stakeholders, educate the general public and lobby government for a policy framework that will bring about the transformational step change needed to support the development of healthy soil for generations to come.
