Protecting and Enhancing Soils: Policy Position Statement 


Concerted action is needed to protect soils. Their needs should be reflected in the policies and actions of all relevant stakeholders, both private and public.

This PPS discusses why soils are so important, what threats they’re facing, past policy action and recommends changes we need to see to protect and enhance soils in future.

CIWEM supports the implementation of the 25 Year Environment Plan and the development of the Agriculture and Environment Bills and encourages bold implementation of them to deliver the stated recommendations.

This PPS has been produced with technical input from CIWEM’s Natural Capital Specialist Panel.
