Synthesis : Goals to Achieve Soil Security


To work towards achieving soil security in the next two decades, participants identified goals to secure soil so that it can contribute to solving other global issues. Specific goals for each dimension were designed to achieve the overall objective of soil security, catalyse research and practice and contribute to soil policy. Agreed goals included: 1. Fifty percent of soil is used according to its capability by 2030. 2. Soil condition is optimally managed according to the inherent capability in 50 % of managed soil systems by 2030. 3. Increase annual capital value of soil ecosystem services by 5 % per annum by 2030 and commercial land values based on full economic value of soil capability and condition, by 2020. 4. Ninety percent awareness and understanding of soil security amongst the general public by 2030. 5. Fifty percent of national governments recognise soil security in their laws and regulations by 2025. It was agreed that we should work towards making soil security a recognised sustainable development goal in its own right.
