Abstract: The ¿Soil Country Analyses¿ series is the outcome of a collaboration between the European Environment Agency (EEA), the EIONET countries and the European Soil Data Centre from the IES-JRC. In order to overcome the general scarceness of information on soil at European scale and to include socioeconomic aspects in the assessment of soil in Europe, the EEA initiated in 2007 the preparation of the soil country analyses, by putting together available information on the different soil aspects. This information was loaded into a customised questionnaire for each country. The countries were then asked to review the information and provide additional data where possible. The country reports presented here are the final outcome of this process. The reports offer an overview of the status of soil resources at the national level and touch on the aspects presented in the Soil Thematic Strategy. These include the main soil threats, the different soil policy instruments (also economic instruments) in force, and the specific soil management programmes and monitoring activities implemented or planned in each country.
