Towards Best Soil Management Practices in the Alps

Natural hazards

Mitigating Natural Hazards by Soil Management:

Sustainable soil management activities related to erosion protection, preventing land-slides and flood risk in FR, IT, SI case study sites lead to mitigate national hazards in the Alps. A joint case study methodology is developed within case study sites FR, IT and SI.

Soil erosion and hydrogeological risk maps for hazard prevention measures (will be) elaborated. Based on soil data, soil degradation risks are identified, interpreted, visualised, communicated to stakeholders and used for mitigating natural hazards.
