Abstract

Numerous methodologies are used in the EU Member States to assess the risk for different soil threats related to various agricultural practices (erosion, salinisation, organic matter decline, compaction and landslides). Our aim was to evaluate the risk assessment methodologies (RAMs) utilized for salinization in the Member States based on questionnaires sent to experts and policy makers. A first analysis of the obtained information reveals that most countries affected by the problem do not have official methodology and some countries do not have any methodology at all. Hungary has an officially recognized assessment. Slovakia and Spain has a RAM used by scientists. Greece and Cyprus provided information about RAM that they would prefer. Salt-affected soils occur in Bulgaria, France, Italy and Romania also, but we didn't get answer from these countries. To fill the information gaps we need a further analysis on scientific papers.
