Better management of soil conditions, to strengthen the resilience to extreme rain events and improve water quality

The combination of management of soils and adapting to climate change can lead to a more resilient management regime. In the TopSoil project focus on synergies between the management and decrease in flood risk will be investigated. Extreme run off due to heavy rain events also have effect on the quality of the flushed water. Traps to catch the water are examples of measure to lower the effect of flash floods. The management of soils are investigated in the following pilot areas:

Better management of soil conditions will be investigated in the following pilots: UK-1, UK-2, BE-1, BE-2, NL-1, NL-2, NL-3, GE-2, GE-5 DK-1, DK-2, DK-3
