General information and objectivesThe NRP "Sustainable Use of Land Resources: Fresh Challenges" aims to fill research gaps, analyse the current condition of the soil more comprehensively and determine the key functions of soil as an ecosystem through interdisciplinary research. In pursuit of these objectives, the NRP will take into account experiences made in implementing the Environmental Protection Act, the Ordinance relating to Impacts on the Soil and current knowledge gained from the soil monitoring established by the Confederation and the cantons.
