Policy approaches to the reduction of soil degradation in Southeast Asia

The project aims at identifying regionally differentiated policy approaches for the reduction of soil degradation in Southeast Asia. To this end, a typology of land use systems is developed using multivariate data analysis. Based on this, critical patterns of socio-economic and natural factors of soil degradation are identified. The empirical foundation of the model using geo-referenced data is the base for the simulation of policy and development scenarios. GIS (geographic information system) allows for a cartographic representation of model results.
