Project SOILval – Recognising SOil values in land use planning systems

Objective
To assess whether and how soil biodiversity, functions and related Ecosystem Services (ES) (here after soil values) already are or could be better recognised and integrated into sustainable land use planning decision-making processes for a wide range of French and Walloon stakeholders that are involved in land use decisions. In particular, looking at how soil values are integrated in the perspective of “No net land take by 2050” objective set by EU Commission (1) and declined in France under “zero artificialisation nette – ZAN” (2) and in the Walloon Region under “Stop béton” (3).

Project MISSOURI

Microplastics in Soil and groundwater : sources, transfer, metrology and impacts

Objective
This work aims at proposing a harmonized definition for microplastics, a set of laboratory methods for the separation and analysis of microplastics in soils, as well as identifying priorities for future projects and give first recommendations for decision-making and management of soil quality, regarding the potential risks associated with micro- and nano-plastics in soil and groundwater.

Project PREMISS – Priorisation of emerging chemical compounds in soils

Objective
Propose a priorisation approach to target CECs that might be present in soils and sub-soils and whose fate, behaviour and toxicity need most attention and additional understanding, from management, policy and R&D perspectives.
