Through the developed service, a plethora of end-users will have information related to water-induced soil erosion for regions of interest. The application will increase awareness and support decisions amongst land management actors and territorial planners on how farming practices, forest management or post-disturbance recovery of soil (i.e., after floods and fires) can contribute to mitigating the hazards associated with soil erosion and consequently decrease physical and economic risks. The Use Case can also support climate-informed design and management of infrastructures, ensuring a more robust evaluation of hazards and risks posed by rainfall-induced soil erosion. Soil erosion estimates for future horizons, also provided by the Use Case building on the most updated and fine resolution climate projections, will allow for the design of more resilient infrastructure, as well as an appropriate and climate-informed allocation of investments for maintenance, update and retrofitting.
