The European Commission's Environment Directorate-General has published a call for tenders for a review of existing information on the interrelations between soil and climate change, which was pre-published as 'interactions between soil protection and climate change'. Through a very comprehensive literature review and expert judgement, the objective of this contract is to build a robust understanding of the interactions between soil under different land uses (agriculture, forestry, wetlands etc.) and climate change in four major areas where big knowledge gaps have been identified. This will allow, in a second stage, improved exploitation of these interactions in order to protect soil functions and combat climate change. This implies that the contractor collects and compares the results of existing pan-European and other relevant models dedicated to the interaction between soil and climate change, so as to provide policy-relevant information concerning the long-term effects on the soil carbon pool of the increase in global temperatures, as well as the measures that can be adopted to fight the decline of soil organic matter.For further information, please contact: European Commission Directorate-General Environment Markets Team, F.2 - Finance BU-5 00/169 B-1049 Brussels Tel. +32 2 296 0008 Fax: +32 2 299 4449 E-mail: env-tenders@ec.europa.eu To see the full details of the call, please consult the following web address: http://ted.europa.eu/udl?uri=TED:NOTICE:111344-2007:TEXT:EN:HTML
