The team is applying the concept of Functional Land Management (Schulte et al., 2014) at EU level. This means assessing the demand and the supply for each of the soil functions, at European scale and assessing potential land use options, using advanced spatially explicit modelling. Outputs include indicative scenario maps of the actual and potential supply of soil functions across the EU.
WP4 team developed a tool for functional land management that allows a dynamic assessment of the supply of soil functions in response to particular changes in land-use and management across Europe. This is possible applying Bayesian Belief modelling to develop demand and supply maps for Europe.
