The workshop will mainly discuss issues regarding the eight mentioned topics which are of interest for this WG on “Soil erosion in relation to land degradation, climate change, food security”.
The outputs of the workshop will be either proceedings or a journal Special issue, together with a policy brief. The WG on Soil Erosion currently includes 52 members. The WG may be renewed/updated in October 2022. This WG is formed in on the basis of past meetings of soil erosion modellers at JRC Ispra (March 2017), Seoul (December 2017) and a Gully erosion workshop (March 2018). In addition, 67 scientists worldwide developed the first Global Applications of Soil Erosion Modelling Tracker (GASEMT).
The WG develops links between soil erosion and emerging issues such as climate change, food security and land degradation. The WG will propose modelling approaches that can respond to new developments in European policies: Post-2020 Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), New Soil Strategy for soils, Biodiversity Strategy, Farm to Fork and Zero Pollution Action Plan.
