Networks of knowledge and training for the effective management of Mediterranean forest habitats of Nature 2000 (LIFE_Redcapacita2015)

Description:

The LIFE_Redcapacita2015 project (also named LIFE RED BOSQUES) aims to improve the management of forests in the Spanish Mediterranean regions included in the Natura 2000 network, by integrating objectives of biodiversity conservation and adaptation to climate change. Training of Natura 2000 managers and the development of management tools for Natura 2000 forest areas are planned to ensure the transfer of scientific knowledge and expertise for improving management effectiveness through improved capacity building. The project will, in fact, involve key stakeholders in the management of Mediterranean forests (private owners, policymakers, and others), taking into account biodiversity and climate adaptation objectives. The project will provide benchmarks for evaluating the conservation status of Mediterranean forest habitats by involving a network of forests to be used as a reference of good conservation status for different types of forest habitat. The project also aims to identify and disseminate good practice regarding the inclusion of conservation and adaptation criteria in forest planning and management, and to develop demonstrative forest conservation pilot plans and management actions.
