National Soil Action Plan 2023 to 2028
This is the first of four action plans to be developed under the National Soil Strategy, released in 2021. It was endorsed by the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry on 28 November with the support of all state and territory jurisdictions.
The action plan sets out 4 priority actions. These guide the focus and design of support to action on soil by governments at all levels and partners over the next 5 years.
All priority actions are linked to the 3 broader goals of the National Soil Strategy:
- Prioritise soil health
- Empower soil innovation and stewards
- Strengthen soil knowledge and capability
