RECONDES (REC) is a research programme based on the landscape connectivity concept and the development of a  strategic spatial approach to soil erosion control. It has addressed the mitigation of desertification processes using innovative vegetation techniques in specific landscape configurations that are prone to severe degradations. The target problematic areas selected in this project are Murcia (Spain) and Tuscany (Italy) as representative of vulnerable dryland zones in the Mediterranean region.
Soil sealing mitigation solutions have been developed.
