Strategies and measures for the mitigation of fire risk in the Mediterranean area (MED-Star)


The project addresses the challenge of enhancing the forecasting, prevention and suppression capabilities of fires in the cooperation area, to protect and enhance the environmental, cultural and tourist resources of the Maritime space.

The general objective of MED-Star is to contribute to the improvement of the capacity of the public institutions involved to jointly prevent and manage the growing risk of fire deriving from climate change, in areas with a high anthropogenic presence and of significant naturalistic interest, also through appropriate adaptation actions.

In particular, the project intends:

  • Develop innovative governance models, with the implementation of joint prevention plans;
  • Transfer innovative models and methodologies from the scientific world to public administrations;
  • Create a joint monitoring and coordination system for the fight against fires;
  • Develop communication, awareness and training actions aimed at the resident population, tourists and operators in the sector.

Four projects are closely linked to the MED-Star strategic project and will carry out pilot actions and investments in infrastructures for fire risk forecasting and management:
