SP3 - Objectives


The main goal is to gain specific knowledge and to conduct recommendations about an adapted and climatically optimized use of land and farming systems in the dry steppe. The aim is to:

  • assess the spatial patterns of wind erosion under the role of climate, soil and land use along a climatic gradient in the steppe
  • identify the key parameters of wind erosion and an evaluation of risk potential due to wind erosion along the climatic gradient
  • quantify the effects of land use and different farming systems for wind erosion on a local and regional level
  • identify the most adapted method of land use and farming systems for reduction of soil and humus losses due to wind erosion
  • develop training materials for stakeholders and farmers
