The land on which Australians live is essential for their wellbeing. It provides the foundation for animals and plants to flourish, with functioning ecosystems providing clean water, clean air and healthy soils as well as maintaining our unique biological diversity.
There is currently no headline indicator for the land dimension that adequately summarises landscapes, biodiversity and ecosystem services.
For a more in-depth discussion about how land relates to progress and whether it is improving in Australia, please see the Land chapter in Measures of Australia’s Progress, 2010 (cat. no. 1370.0).
