The environment is now considered to be a cross-cutting area and not an issue to be approached by each sector individually. In this scenario, soil protection is seen as something that will help to tackle some of the most important challenges of today’s society. Biodiversity conservation, human health and well-being improvement, adaptation and mitigation of the effects of climate change, and water quality and availability are objectives that are impossible to achieve without comprehensive soil protection, which will be possible thanks to a coordinated effort by all those with soil management competences and capabilities.
