Welcome to the Observatory Policy Interface (OPI) questionnaire.
The objective of the Observatory Policy Interface (OPI) is that of bringing the data and results of the GROW Initiative to the attention of policy and decision makers, contribute to promoting participatory governance on land and water management in Europe, and affirm GROW as a successful example of citizen observatory in the region. In addition, the OPI aims to be the platform through which continuity and political support will be warrant to the project after its end. The broad ambition is that of ensuring that the observatory will remain active after the end of the project and that it will serve at example to other countries and regions.

The work of the OPI is just to start and we want to make sure to be working in the right direction. In this context, we are looking for your opinion and that of other key stakeholdersin decision making on soil.

The questionnaire is composed of 10 questions and would take about 10-15 minutes to complete.
