Through this project, we aim to curb greenhouse gas emissions from wildfires by shifting the paradigm of fire management from suppression to prevention and promoting fire-smart landscapes.
Over the course of this project, we will develop guidelines for forest landscape restoration (FLR) fire-smart landscape planning in the Mediterranean region, providing guidance to practitioners with the goal of reducing wildfire hazard through integrated landscape management. We will facilitate the drafting of Landscape Action plans that will set the ground for the reduction of wildfires in the target areas. Using the knowledge management platform of the MedForVal network of High Ecological Value forest landscapes, we will upscale the outputs at the international level. This project is implemented in a partnership with Instituto Oikos and Luberon Natural Regional Park.
This project is financially supported by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI).
