SOLPYR will provide unified information on mountain soils

Mountain soils constitute the foundation for agriculture, supporting essential ecosystem functions and food security. Mountain soils are particularly susceptible to climate change, deforestation, unsustainable farming practices and resource extraction methods that affect their fertility and trigger land degradation, desertification and disasters such as floods and landslides.

SOLPYR aims to provide unified information on mountain soils on a Pyrenean scale as well as a catalogue of the main types of soils and their vulnerability, define a series of good practices for their protection, and create pedagogical resources for raising awareness of the population and mountain users for soil conservation, as well as involving them through participatory science actions.
