Healthy Municipal Soils
As part of the EU Soil Mission, the HuMUS project engages and activates municipalities and regions to protect and restore soil health.
Goals and impact
HuMUS is building, elevating, and sharing the knowledge base on soil health. The project provides open access to research outputs, peer-reviewed scientific publications, policy briefs, data reports, fact sheets, visual tools, Territorial Management Agreements, and other results.
HuMUS training programmes are publicly available to increase awareness and understanding of the value of soils and soil health challenges and their bio-physical and socio-economic drivers across Europe. These resources provide regions and municipalities with information to make informed decisions.
HuMUS reviews region-specific policies to create a catalogue of best policies and practices for the improvement of soil health. This catalogue systemises experiences and lessons learned from regional and local authorities to improve soil health, increase citizen engagement, and promote the best use of EU funds. The catalogue is a useful reference for municipalities and regions to design and implement activities and policies with the use of EU financial instruments.
