The multifunctional nature and competing demands on soil and land resources deserve a particular analysis. There is a common understanding that soil, as a limited and non-renewable resource at high risk of degradation, has to be preserved. The European Union (EU), with the Green Deal for Europe (launched in 2019), created new conditions for preserving soils for future generations and concretely fight climate change.

In this regard, soils play a pivotal role as reflected in the agricultural policy, the Farm to Fork strategy, the Biodiversity strategy, the climate change (Climate Law), and other related environmental policies. In addition, the EU indicated in its roadmap to a resource-efficient Europe the aim to achieve no net land take by 2050 and committed to a land degradation neutrality by 2030.

Last, the European Commission has launched an online public consultation on the development of a new EU Soil Strategy.
All this creates the conditions for a new specific soil strategy paradigm to be addressed to COP26.
