Abstract

This report is an output of the JRC�s European Soil Bureau Network workshop that was held at the Faculty of Agriculture in Zagreb, Croatia in period from 28-30 of September 2006. The objective of this workshop was to gather key players in the development and/or implementation of soil protection policy, soil survey, soil monitoring and soil information systems and discuss further strengthening of collaborations between the countries of south-eastern Europe and JRC. This report gives an overview of the activities considering the organization of the soil data and soil protection policies in the countries of south-eastern Europe: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia. In addition, several chapters were contributed by Digital Soil Mapping groups from the region. The methodology presented sets a basis for further work on production of soil geoinformation systems, dissemination of soil information and its utilization for decision making, both at regional, national and European levels.
