1 - Organic Matter

2 - Intactness and Integrity

3 - Natural Capital Valuation

Objective 2 - Soil Intactness and Integrity

The key soil attributes, their functions and their recovery together with the role and effectiveness of vegetation for enhancing soil intactness and maintaining soil integrity are being quantified and sustainable land management practices developed for erosion-prone lands. These results will be used in Objective 3 so that the natural capital value of soil intactness and integrity can be determined.
