Soil and water bioengineering – Sustainable erosion solutions for the Mediterranean

AoS. Soil and water bioengineering

Accelerated soil erosion and loss is a serious environmental problem, particularly for the Mediterranean region, due to its long history of human pressures, seasonally contrasting climate and rugged topography. Anthropogenic activities such as agriculture, deforestation, urbanization and

Global erosivity map shows differences between climatic regions

The underlying JRC research, published in the Nature Group’s Scientific Reports, highlights differences between climatic regions and calls for global action to protect our soils. Soil is our most important source of food. And yet, much of
