DATASET

INCA - Soil Retention

Collection: MAES : Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and their Services 

Description

This dataset is an output of KIP INCA. On site soil erosion from rainfall is regarded as one of the major causes of environmental degradation. However, healthy ecosystems can also halt soil erosion and contribute to the maintenance of soil quality and therefore of ecological processes. These dataset contains the potential of ecosystems to reduce soil erosion by rain, the demand (or need) for soil retention by ecosystems, the amount of soil retained by ecosystems (service use), the unmet demand (areas with an ecosystem deficit to retain soil) and the monetary value of the service provided by ecosystems.
