RECARE: Preventing and Remediating Degradation of Soils in Europe Through Land Care

This site is for those people who are interested in learning about the threats to our soils and measures to prevent and remediate against soil degradation. The site is linked to research that is being undertaken by the EU funded RECARE project. Soil functions are threatened globally by a wide range of processes, and in Europe, a number of threats have been identified in the European Soil Thematic Strategy. The challenge is to prevent degradation and its adverse effects on soil functions and ecosystem services, while simultaneously improving livelihoods. Our aim for the Hub is to provide information and guidance to help practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and the wider public to understand the impact of soil degradation upon soil functions and ecosystem services and to identify innovative measures to prevent and remediate against soil degradation. If you are interested in learning about specific soil threats, you may find it helpful to start on the Soil Threats pages for an overview of different processes that impact our soil. If you are interested in more detailed guidance for assessing soil degradation or learning about management measures to prevent and remediate against soil degradation, these are provided under Tools and Outputs.
