In brief

Volume I consists of the executive summaries from each of the five Working Groups.
This publication presents the actual reports from the 5 Technical Working Groups that operated during 2003-2004 under the umbrella of the Thematic Strategy for Soils.

Copy of the above indicated “mandates” are also included into volume I. These mandates were developed by the European Commission colleagues, consolidated by the stakeholder “Advisory Forum” and then passed on to the Technical Working Groups. The mandates form the basis for the activities of the Working Groups and outlined key issues where technical guidance was required.

Volumes II-IV present the entire reports (excluding enclosures) as developed by the Working Groups.
Due to the large number of enthusiastic and competent participants in the Working Groups it has been possible to further delegate specific work packages and to constitute drafting groups or “Task Groups” within each of the 5 Working Groups. 31 Task Groups have been established and were led by Task Group Leaders. Volumes II-IV follow this structure of Task Group Reports.
