Abstract

© 2019 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. Special issue Mapping and Modelling Soil Erosion to Address Societal Challenges in a Changing World presents advances in interdisciplinary methodologies for the study of the soil erosion/land management/climate change nexus, with a focus on societal challenges linked to land degradation. Contribution of 22 research teams active in 17 countries all over the world provided a global perspective on how soil erosion research contributes to meet societal challenges of our time. The authors conclude that (a) inclusive representation of non-linear system feedback between erosion and land management; (b) combination of mapping, measuring, monitoring, and modelling methods on different temporal and spatial scales; and (c) inclusive, cooperative interdisciplinary research approaches are inevitable to support management aiming for land degradation neutrality.
