Quo vadis soil protection in the Alps? [1.73 mb]
In many countries the Alpine Convention’s Soil Conservation Protocol is a requirement "neglected" by public administration and by society as accountability is spread across many fields of legislation. Especially in the Alps soil conservation is of great significance as soil is a limited non-renewable and endangered resource. During the German Presidency of the Alpine Convention (2015-2016) an assessment of the implementation status of the Soil Conservation Protocol was performed by the present study. Various substantive aspects of soil conservation were considered in the assessment. The following thematic areas were worked out in detail by an online expert survey an international symposium and a literature review: risk assessment / erosion qualitative soil protection and soil functions mountain farming forestry wetlands moors qualitative soil protection / land take as well as international / Alps-wide cooperation.
