Changes in the terrestrial component of the water cycle

Most European countries expect a continuation of current land-use specialisation trends: urbanisation, agricultural intensification and abandonment, and natural afforestation (EEA 2010e). This happens in the context of an overall slow-down of total land changes observed in 2000–2006 and the substitution of residential area expansion with dominant growth of economic sites (EEA 2010e). Figure 4.1 shows the predominate net land conversion in Europe.
