Main topics that will be considered in the Conferences are: Soil protection and Industry, Agriculture, Land management, Enhancement of Natural Risks, Forestry, Biodiversity and Ecosystems, Soil Information collection and management.
The Conference is aimed at bringing together experiences, regulatory approach, problems and solutions in order to cope with the numerous challenges in this field; this need has been pointed out also by recent Implementation Challenge IMPEL study.
