Towards Best Soil Management Practices in the Alps
Mitigating Natural Hazards by Soil Management:
Sustainable soil management activities related to erosion protection, preventing landslides 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.
Based on soil data, soil degradation risks were identified, interpreted, visualised, communicated to stakeholders and used for mitigating natural hazards best practice case studies:
- Soil research towards a sustainable mountain vineyard management – limiting soil erosion on steep slopes and preserving cultural heritage; Valle d’Aosta, Italy
- Preventing hydrogeological risk in Aosta Valley Region, Italy
- Revegetation of degraded areas in the French Alps
