Final Report - INDEX (Indicators and thresholds for desertification, soil quality, and remediation)

Project ID: 505450
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final report for the INDEX project. The project was initiated in response to the Global Change and Ecosystems (GCE) thematic sub-priority of the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) and it was designed to fulfil the European Commission's (EC) request for a Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP).

Results confirmed that it was possible to have soil quality indicators in specific pressures and states with local benchmarks, which indicators had been tested for different land conditions and could be easily measured.

The report provides an overview of the performed research concerning the mechanisms of desertification and soil quality as well as the design of indicators with the help of which land degradation as well as its remediation can be assessed.
