Pilot case studies
The biological district approach is an innovative experience of public-private policy coordination around food and agriculture. As it assumes the bioregion as the main spatial reference, it offers a systemic response to societal challenges and transcends artificial boundaries between policies, programming, and different levels of governance. Using this multi-stakeholder approach, HuMUS selects stakeholders to develop Territorial Management Agreements at the local or regional levels. In the selected territories, HuMUS identified 13 exemplary cases that represent good practices of participatory soil health management and will analyse and test the case studies’ replicability in the home region of each project partner. These cases could be part of future Living Labs or Lighthouses under the Soil Mission. Over time, Territorial Management Agreements will crystallise the results of structured dialogues to co-design public and private strategies to improve and restore soil health at regional and local levels in coherence with existing EU legislation and the forthcoming EU Soil Health Law.
