Final Report - BORASSUS (The environmental and socio-economic contribution of palm geotextiles to sustainable development and soil conservation)

Project ID: 510745
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

Field and laboratory studies suggest that geotextile mats are an effective, sustainable and economically viable soil conservation technique. The BORASSUS research project was funded by the European Commission and aimed to evaluate different palm geotextiles' characteristics through the analysis of a series of case studies in Africa, Europe, south America and southeast Asia. This final activity report summarises the project objectives and provides a brief overview of its principal achievements.

Firstly, the structure of the project is highlighted, along with the BORASSUS specific targets. The progress of the different work packages is then analysed and the deviations from the programme and the necessary corrective actions are pinpointed. Finally, information on management activities and knowledge dissemination is provided.
