EGU24 – (Vienna & online).

14–19 April 2024

Nature-based and bio-based solutions for geohazard mitigation on slopes and streambanks.

We are organizing a session on nature-based solutions – and bio-based solutions to mitigate the effects of landslides and erosion at EGU24 – European Geosciences Union The objective of the session is to stimulate the interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge on nature-based (such as Soil and Water Bioengineering, vegetation use, capillary barriers, …) and bio-based (such as MICP calcite induced by microbial activities, bio-polymers…) solutions for the mitigation of risks related to hydro-geological disasters, with particular attention to landslides and erosion on slopes and streambanks, including
biodiversity and ecosystem services dimensions.

The session has been organized by:

Alessandro Fraccica, Vittoria Capobianco, André Evette, Paola Sangalli, Stephan Hörbinger (ISPRA – Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Reseach, NGI – Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, INRAE – French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment, EFIB – European Federation of Soil and Water Bioengineering, BOKU – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna)


The deadline for submission of abstracts is 10 January 2024 – 13:00 CET.
