Sustainable use and protection of soil-sediment-water systems
A vital and resilient SSW-system is both a solution as a boundary condition to facilitate large transition and achieve societal/sustainable development goals. Climate change, urbanisation and industrialization increase pressure on the limited above and underground space. Smart, integrated solutions, concepts and approaches such as the use of ecosystem services, land stewardship and integrated area-based planning give substance to sustainable management of this system, in relation to human activities and objectives.
Topics under this theme are:
1a) Land stewardship and achieving the SDG’s: better implementation of the SSW-system
1b) Circular economy approaches
1c) Nature-based solutions and ecosystem service implementation
