RECARE soil sealing poster presented at Renaturing Cities Conference

Soil sealing posterA poster on soil sealing prepared by the RECARE project team will be presented at the Renaturing Cities Conference organised by European Commission (Directorate for Climate Action and Resource Efficiency)

Soil sealing is identified as one of the main threats to soil functions in Europe. Soil sealing means the permanent covering of an area of land and its soil by impermeable artificial material (e.g. asphalt and concrete), for example through buildings and roads.  Under the EU RECARE project, cities in The Netherlands, Poland and Spain will serve as Case Study areas for an analysis of the effectiveness of current or past soil protection approaches.  The Case Studies will:

  • Assess soil sealing trends in 4 diverse cities using a uniform methodology
  • Explain past and current soil protection regulations and spatial planning approaches
  • Develop good practice recommendations
