The purpose of the work in WP 2 of the MAGIC project is to map, characterize and analyze projections for current and future marginal lands in Europe facing natural constraints and provide a spatially explicit classification that will serve as a basis for developing sustainable best-practice options for industrial crops in Europe.


This report provides a description of the approach applied to map marginal lands based on the definition and focus described in D2.1 of MAGIC ‘Definition and classification of marginal lands suitable for industrial crops in Europe’. Different succeeding versions of a spatially explicit database (MAP-DB) of a Marginal Agro-Ecological Zonation (M-AEZ) of Europe will be generated. In this deliverable the methodological approach to mapping the first version of Marginal Agro-Ecological Zonation (M-AEZ) in MAGIC is presented.
