Stakeholders' Perceptions on the Role of Soil Organic Carbon


Stakeholders' Perceptions on the Role of Soil Organic Carbon


The CIRCASA-Team would like to ask for your views on the role of the role of Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) management for climate change mitigation and sustainable development. The survey is part of the H2020 CIRCASA project.  The aim of CIRCASA  is to improve international research cooperation and strengthen the international research community in the field of soil carbon sequestration in agricultural soils at European Union and global levels. To support this aim a Strategic Research Agenda is being co-designed with stakeholders. This Strategic Research Agenda will outline priorities for the alignment of international research.

The results of the stakeholder survey will feed directly into the development of the international Strategic Research Agenda on SOC. We also expect that it will directly inform upcoming research priorities within Europe.  Strengthened coordination in European and global research on SOC management in agricultural soils will lead to improved understanding and scientific basis to target ambitious practices required to preserve and enhance SOC.

What do you think are the most effective management options, barriers and solutions, and what knowledge and research is needed to improve SOC management?

Please take 30 minutes to fill out this survey. The survey is available in seven languages (English, French, Spanish, German, Portugese, Danish and Russian).

If you are a farmer, landowner, an NGO, private business, in academia, a member of civil society, a government authority, or dealing with soil organic carbon management in any other way, we would love to hear your opinions.
There are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers. Your answers will be treated confidentially.

We would very much welcome your participation in the online survey and/or if you forward our survey to other interested parties.

The survey is open until 1 March 2019.
