EJP SOIL WEBINAR #2: Effective management practices for climate adaptation
How do we synthesize and quantify the role of soil management on the hydrological soil functions and soil as a climate adaptation tool? Join the dialogue as experts and stakeholders to discuss innovative ideas and expert knowledge on practices and cropping systems.

The CLIMASOMA project
August 24th, 2021: 14:00 – 15:30 CEST
To provide information on how we aim to synthesize and quantify the role of soil management on the hydrological soil functions and the adaptive capacity and resilience of crop production to climate change within specific pedo-climatic contexts. Get feedback from experts and stakeholders from various fields so as to make sure we adopt a robust and comprehensive methodology.
CLIMASOMA will share first insights on what existing literature can tell us and more importantly, what it does not yet tell us. We would like your opinion on our methodology.
EJP soil consortium members with interest in how soil management and cropping systems improve the ability of soil to adapt weather extremes. You can contribute with your expert knowledge on practices and cropping systems that CLIMASOMA have not considered and with other innovative ideas to tackle the synthesis of knowledge.
Your input will be discussed with the EJP soil community and the project consortium and adapted were possible and feasible within the project context .

About the CLIMASOMA project
The ecosystem services a soil can deliver and its potential as climate adaptation tool, depend profoundly on its structure. This structure influences transport of water, nutrients and life in soil. Soil structure is constantly evolving. Although there is a wealth of knowledge available on the individual processes driving soil structure, the combined effects of our soil management practices, cropping systems and new climates on soil hydrological functioning is still poorly understood.
The success of different management practices and cropping system is often conditioned to specific local pedo-climatic conditions and hence an comprehensive overview is needed to properly evaluate the effectiveness of various practices.
Similarly, the adoption of the practices by stakeholders is a key aspect to consider for effective policy making.
The objective of CLIMASOMA is therefore to synthesize and quantify the role of soil management on the hydrological soil functions and the adaptive capacity and resilience of crop production to climate change within specific pedo-climatic contexts.
As the range of practices and possible impacts, as well as available literature is huge, we need your feedback on our approaches and first results during this webinar.
