BonaRes Assessment Framework

BonaRes assessment framework

The BonaRes Assessment Framework has been developed to study impacts of soil management practices on societal targets. It is designed for agricultural systems in industrialised countries where both yield gap and contribution to gross domestic product (GDP) are low.

The BonaRes Assessment Framework is based on the DPSIR framework and the six steps of impact assessment. It links driving forces and management decisions to soil reactions, changes in soil functions and their impacts on societal targets. Impacts within the categories of resource use efficiency and ecosystem services are analysed. These two assessment perspectives are considered complementary and strongly correspond with requirements of the German bioeconomy strategies. Likewise, they are related to a number of targets under the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Application of the BonaRes Assessment Frameworks helps to structure research, define impact areas and indicators and to identify research gaps.
