1 7-8 maggio 2009 Centro Congressi Palazzo delle Stelline Corso Magenta, 71 Milano Urbanizzazione e sicurezza alimentare: alcuni dati sulle tendenze europee Ciro Gardi, Claudio Bosco, Ezio Rusco EUROPEAN COMMISSION JOINT RESEARCH CENTRE Institute for Environment and Sustainability Land Management and Natural Hazard Unit Soil Action

2 Ispra, May 2009 – IRIS Workshop 2 Food scarcity??

3 Ispra, May 2009 – IRIS Workshop 3 Agricultural productivity in EU Cereals production in Europe is until now, more or less stable, but there are several question marks for the future shrinking of agricultural land (soil sealing, soil degradation processes) climate change competition with bioenergy crops the energy incognita (fertilizers, pesticides, etc.)

4 Ispra, May 2009 – IRIS Workshop 4 Soil sealing in EU More than 8,000 Km 2 of agricultural land have been lost between 1990 and 2000 (like the area of the Umbria region)

5 Ispra, May 2009 – IRIS Workshop 5 Soil sealing in EU

6 Ispra, May 2009 – IRIS Workshop 6 Agricultural productivity loss The global agricultural productivity loss (EU 20) it has been estimated in 4.5 milions of tonnes of wheat

7 Ispra, May 2009 – IRIS Workshop 7 Which soils have been lost? The evaluations presented are based on the avearage productivity of the Nuts 2 units (e.g. italian regions) Next step of this research will be the evaluation of the specific productivity potential, based on: soil type landform climate

8 joint research centre European Commission Thank you for your attention !
