AbstractThis chapter explains how sustainable development can be translated into principles of sustainable land management. In Chapter 5 these principles will be related to European soil protection law. One of the conclusions of the SCAPE case studies described in Chapter 4 is that although principles are known, they are sometimes ignored. Maybe there are good reasons for ignoring principles and accepting soil and land degradation as a consequence. However, in most cases the choices or risks are not debated. This is partly because too frequently, decision makers do not have access to the correct information or influence. Knowing the principles is only half of the problem; the second half is requiring people to act upon them, which is a question of political will and prevailing norms. The anecdotes described in the next section show what can happen with soil conservation advice in practice. These examples are mainly from Spain and Norway, but they could have come from almost anywhere in Europe.
