The RedBosques project aims to improve the management of Spanish Mediterranean forests included in Natura 2000, facilitating access of practitioners to state-of-the-art knowledge. The ultimate goal is that forest managers effectively include biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation objectives in their daily practice.
- Outline baseline scenarios for assessing the conservation status of Mediterranean forests.
- Develop criteria and tools for the design and implementation of forestry management practices in Natura 2000 Mediterranean forests with objectives that regard biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation.
- Transfer state-of- the-art knowledge to target audience and stakeholders.
To achieve these goals, during a 3-year period, different actions will be carried out in order to:
- Identify the project’s target audience and stakeholders.
- Set up the project’s working group and the manager’s technical discussion forum.
- Set up an exchange programme among Spanish Natura 2000 forest managers.
- Identify a national Network of Reference Forests, based on shared criteria and protocols.
- Identify forest management best practices including conservation and climate change adaptation objectives.
- Implement several forest management demonstrative actions that include conservation and climate change adaptation objectives in Els Ports Natural Park.
- Transfer the results: training programme, communication actions, technical publications…
The project is coordinated by EUROPARC Spain and Fundación Fernando González Bernáldez.
