Status and prospect of soil information in south-eastern Europe: soil databases, projects and applications

Source(s):  European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC)
Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES)

An area of rapidly developing initiatives is the EU’s Thematic Strategy for Soil Protection, officially adopted by the Commission on September 22nd 2006 [http://ec.europa.eu/environment/soil/]. The strategy makes a clear statement of the need for policy relevant soil information and indicators across Europe for the identification of areas at risk from a variety threats to soil function. In this context, the Land Management and Natural Hazards Unit of the JRC’s Institute for Environment and Sustainability recently held a workshop with the specific objectives to strengthen collaboration on soil protection between the JRC and the countries of south-eastern Europe and to improve contacts between researchers and policy makers in the region.
