Climate change impacts coastal areas by sea-level rise and more frequent droughts. These events increase the salinity in agricultural soils, affecting food systems overstretched by an increasing global population. Progressing salinisation is one of the major drivers of soil degradation in Europe and North Africa, exerting increasing pressure on conventional farming.
Therefore, the inter- and transdisciplinary project SALAD aims at improving the resilience of food production in saline and potentially saline agricultural areas in Mediterranean and the North Sea regions by:
