AREFLH is a partner of the NOVASOIL project (Innovative Business models for soil health). Its general objective is to highlight the benefits of investments in soil health for society and the environment.

The project will hold its first Online Community of Practices (CoP) Event” Soil health for a Sustainable Future” on 12 December from 9:30 am to 11.30 am. 


There is no life without soil. If soils are healthy and when sustainably managed, they provide food, clean water, habitats for biodiversity and other important services while contributing to climate resilience. 


This first event CoP will focus on the following topics: 

  • Introduction to the NOVASOIL project 
  • Case studies of successful business models related to soil health 
  • Possibilities for the decision-making support tool 

The decision-making support tool is a web-based application that will help users to make informed decisions about soil management. The tool will be co-developed with the participation of stakeholders, such as farmers, businesses, and policymakers. 

NOVASOIL project highlights the benefits of investing in soil for society and the environment. It will propose a toolbox of good practices, models and business cases drawn from different parts of Europe and beyond.


The overall aim is to promote sustainable soil management under different land uses and climatic conditions while promoting soil health. The NOVASOIL toolbox will be developed with the guidance of a multidisciplinary team of experts with experience in developing soil health business models based on sustainable crop and soil management.
