Abstract

Following the recommendations of several working groups of soil experts, the Commission has established, within the Joint Research Centre, Space Applications Institute, at Ispra (Italy), a special unit called European Soil Bureau (ESB). It will carry out scientific and technical duties in order to harmonise soil information relevant to Community policies, its relevant General Directorates (DGs), to the European Environment Agency (EEA) and to concerned institutions of the Member States. It reinforces the work which has been done in the frame of the Soil Information Focal Point (SIFP).
