How you had your say

We sought feedback on the draft National Soil Strategy.

The consultation process included:

  • 7 state and territory consultation workshops;
  • An internal department consultation;
  • A cross-agency Australian Government consultation and;
  • A series of additional follow-up one-on-one consultations with key stakeholders.

Across these consultations, over 200 stakeholders from outside the Australian Government engaged. Relevant line areas within the Department and other Commonwealth agencies that undertake work linked to the priorities identified for consideration in the Strategy were also engaged.

We also held two open public surveys which received over 350 responses from a range of stakeholders. Further details about the consultation process are outlined in the National Soil Strategy Consultation Report.

What happens next
