Earth Day 2024: how sustainability links to drought preparedness

 

In honouring Earth Day this week, we are reminded that our commitment to sustainability extends far beyond just one day.

This year’s theme, “Planet vs Plastics,” underscores the urgent need to address environmental challenges such as plastic pollution and climate change.

At the Vic Hub, we’re proud to be part of sustainable projects such as the ‘Green Dams Project: Improving vegetation management around dams’ led by our Gippsland Node. 

This project is designed to enhance water management and quality in Gippsland’s dams, fostering sustainability through improved water-management practices creating drought preparedness by ensuring reliable water sources even in times of scarcity.

Soil health vital

Moreover, as stewards of the land, it’s crucial to recognise the pivotal role that soil health plays in safeguarding our environment and food security. To this end, we invite you to participate in a vital initiative: the soil survey. This survey, supported by the Australian Government’s Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), aims to gather insights on soil issues, farming practices and research needs in the agricultural sector.

Your input is invaluable in shaping future soil-management strategies and ensuring the resilience of our agricultural systems in the face of climate change. By dedicating just 15 minutes of your time to complete the survey, you can contribute to a more sustainable and resilient agricultural future.
