Constant urban development creates pressure on soils within the administrative borders of both cities and suburban areas. Often, uncontrolled land take and sealing decrease the extent of high quality soils that are able to provide numerous functions: crop production, water retention, contaminant filtration, and the provision of biodiversity. With limited awareness, lack of soil protection rules and competing land use interests of different stakeholder groups the continued trend of quality soil being lost to urbanization could continue into the future. Currently, there is limited information on trends in sealing of soil resources and the impact of existing regulations and development strategies. Awareness raising and information produced within the project will be provided to stakeholders in Wroclaw and Poznan. These stakeholders will assess best management practice examples (planning tools, tax instruments, compensation mechanisms, fee payment, etc.) in terms of feasibility for the local situation and for Poland and will help define reliable soil protection goals.
