Policy Recommendations - Findings from the LEDDRA Project

TimeLoc
17 March 2014
Berlin
Germany

The LEDDRA research demonstrated that land and ecosystem degradation and desertification (LEDD) does not only result from ineffective design and implementation of environmental policies. Effective responses should also seek to address a range of socio-economic concerns which contribute to land and ecosystem-related problems. In her presentation "Policy recommendations - findings from the LEDDRA project," Ruta Landgrebe of Ecologic Institute highlighted this need for a socio-ecological fit of responses to LEDD. To achieve this, policies should address environmental, economic, and socialRead more

Research on Responses to Land Degradation and Desertification - LEDDRA

TimeLoc
17 March 2014 to 18 March 2014
Berlin
Germany
The LEDDRA Policy Conference aimed to present selected and policy-related project findings and to discuss associated policy recommendations, as well as to develop new critical thinking to support future initiatives addressing Land and Ecosystem Degradation and Desertification (LEDD). The conference brought together LEDDRA researchers, policy makers from international, EU organizations, and Member States, as well as stakeholder groups and NGOs. The discussion and questions raised by the presentations and dialogue at the conference will contribute to ongoing efforts to combat land degradation and desertification at the international, European, and national levels.

Resource Efficiency in Practice - Closing Mineral Cycles

December 2013 to December 2014
Inefficient use of fertilisers leads to the accumulation of nutrients in areas of intense agricultural activities and can cause serious environmental problems in these areas and beyond. Those problems stem from the disturbance of natural mineral cycles, partly resulting from the extraction of elements in one location and being applied elsewhere. Furthermore, the production of fertilizers consumes natural resources, such as energy, water, and non-renewable mineral resources that contain necessary elements.Read more

Preventing and Remediating Soil Degradation (RECARE)

November 2013 to October 2018
Over the last 5 years, the RECARE project applied a transdisciplinary approach, actively integrating and advancing knowledge of stakeholders and scientists in 17 case studies, to identify and develop effective measures for improved soil protection in Europe.
