Project description

The ETC project covers the period from March 2012 to June 2014.

Soil is the starting point for all life on Earth, and it provides for more than 90% of our food. It is threatened in various ways: Building blocks and excessive exploitation in favorable conditions, neglect and give-up in unfavorable conditions. A general awareness of the population seems to get lost and does no longer correspond to reality, respectively. Soils are living systems, which can only perform their functions within the ecosystem and for man, if their qualities are largely intact. A sustainable cultivation of land in the Danube region can decisively contribute to soil fertility, preventive flood protection, and to the use of soils as carbon storage tanks – and thus to climate protection.

The effect of the project examples of SONDAR CZ-AT shall become relevant to the entire Danube region, and after termination of project a development of strategies for a continuation of activities shall be achieved. The measures taken by the partners aim at a demonstration of quantitative and qualitative soil protection by means of best-practice examples. Main topics of this project are a long-term improvement of soil quality through increase in soil awareness and demonstrating and best-practice implementation of possibilities of avoidance and reduction, respectively of soil erosion.
