RECARE Policy Conference, 27 September 2018 in Brussels
Soils in European Union are a vital environmental resource in need of better protection. Despite the wide recognition of the importance of soils, soil protection efforts in European Union have been partial, fragmented and insufficient to halt their degradation. Calls for improving this situation have increasingly come from scientists, policymakers, non-governmental organisations and citizens. The discussions and negotiations around the design of European policies for post-2020 period offer the opportunity to improve the current situation.
What is the best way forward for soil protection in the EU? How can we improve EU policies to secure the delivery of soil ecosystem services?
These questions will be at the core of the Final Conference of the RECARE project to take place on 27 September 2018 in Brussels, presenting project findings on:
The event will offer an opportunity to discuss how RECARE results can influence the design of future European policies on soil protection.
