Extreme climate conditions affect the maintenance of soil functions, especially in areas particularly subject to rainfall-induced erosion. The case study Soil Erosion is based on a consolidated empirical model to generate projections about the potential loss of soil due to intense rainy events and land management on both forests and agricultural areas. The application of the model at national scale will allow us to identify areas particularly at risk under changes in climate variability and to formulate strategies to reduce soil erosion through appropriate management of forests and agricultural fields, also in terms of working practices and soil protection measures.
