Mineral resources in sustainable land-use planning

The MinLand project has been designed to meet challenges concerning competing land-use planning related to different land-use interests.

Competition about the use of land is fierce within Europe. Currently, the need for metals, construction raw materials and industrial minerals is increasing. There is a large need for access to land for exploration and extraction of mineral raw materials, including critical raw materials. MinLand aimed to secure access to land, with actual or potentially valuable resources, for exploration and extraction of minerals, in an integrated and optimised process, within the EU.
