The European Commission has recently adopted the Thematic Strategy for soil protection (COM(2006)231 final), with the objective to ensure that Europe’s soils remain healthy and capable of supporting human activities and ecosystems. Climate change is identified as a common element in many soil threats. Therefore the Commission intends to assess the actual contribution of the protection of soil to climate change mitigation and the effects of climate change on soil productivity and the possible depletion of soil organic matter as result of climate change. The objective of this study is to provide a state of the art and more robust understanding of interactions between soil under different land uses and climate change than is available now, through a comprehensive literature review and expert judgment.
