Short description: With the EUSO Soil Health Dashboard, the JRC provides a spatial assessment of where unhealthy soils may be located in the EU – and which degradation processes affect them using a convergence of evidence methodology, which spatially combines datasets to highlight the intensity and location of 15 soil degradation processes. The resulting map indicates areas that are likely to be affected by soil degradation as well as the types of soil degradation with the loss of soil organic carbon (48%), the loss of soil biodiversity (37.5%), and soil erosion by water (32%) being the most prevalent types. The EUSO Soil Health Dashboard will evolve as new scientific data become available (e.g. Horizon Europe’s Soil Mission projects) and with the implementation of EU and national soil policies, in particular the forthcoming EU Soil Health Law.
