FOREXT was present at the HoliSoils annual meeting as part of the project’s Stakeholders and End-user Advisory Board. During a panel discussion, the participants explored which results are relevant for stakeholders, where they use the results, how these results are best provided and why they are important. Our Chair Mark Prior concludes that understanding our soils better is very import for the future of European forest management.
HoliSoils – Holistic management practices, modelling and monitoring for European forest soils – is a Horizon 2020 project (May 2021- October 2025) to develop a harmonised soil monitoring framework. It identifies and tests soil management practices aiming to mitigate climate change and sustain provision of various ecosystem services essential for human livelihoods and wellbeing.
