The central motivation of the BonaRes Centre (Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung GmbH – UFZ) is the transfer of existing and newly generated knowledge about soil functions into scientifically based decision support tools for soil management in the context of a sustainable bioeconomy.

Why do we need development policy?


Today, our lives are much more interconnected with those of people living on other continents than ever before. We have many advantages because of that.
