South Australians have a proud history of working together to improve their environment and to build resilience in a changing world. This experience will be invaluable in meeting the challenges identified in this report of protecting the state's natural heritage for future generations in the face of climate change, natural resource depletion and pollution.

Drawing on the growing body of research and evidence, the report identifies the environmental challenges facing South Australians and the actions needed to address them. It emphasises the important relationship between a healthy environment, human wellbeing and economic prosperity and the need for government, business and the community to urgently consider the impacts of their decisions and actions on each of these pillars of a sustainable society.
