Abstract

According to the EFIB (European Federation of Soil Bioengineering) soil
bioengineering is a discipline that combines technology biology, and sociology making use of plants and plant communities to help protect and develop land uses and infrastructures, and contribute to landscape development, particular in the domain of slope stability and erosion control.
The promotion and greater adoption of soil bioengineering in the Mediterranean
ecoregion is the main aim of the Erasmus + ECOMED project. This aim is being
achieved by generating sector-specific theoretical and practical materials and tools essential for the specialization process and enhancement of this sector in the region of interest which is at the core of the ECOMED project strategy and approach. The lack of specialized training, a collection of analysed case studies and shortage of specialized staff in soil bioengineering in most of the Mediterranean countries makes it a necessity to develop training courses and a handbook on soil and fluvial soil bioengineering implementation, along with hazard assessment methods and effective selection of soil bioengineering methods specific to the Mediterranean environment.
