Pilot actions

The implementation of the 3 pilot actions contributes to the RCO84 Programme Implementation Indicator. Pilot action number 1 will consist of the creation and implementation of an energy community in the town of Bembibre, which will also study the implementation of the results of pilot action number 2 and 3 in order to replicate a sustainable mobility system based on green hydrogen as an engine and take advantage of possible surpluses for the distribution of natural gas. Action number 2 will integrate a self-consumption system and test a hydrogen bike system that will be tested in both Bembibre and Portalegre. Action 3 shall launch a demonstration laboratory in which application simulations will be carried out to adopt solutions to real cases: conversion of traffic, distribution of natural gas, modernisation of agricultural transport, etc.

Catalogue of pilot actions for forest conservation and resilience

The objective of this catalogue is to present in a synthetic and operational way the pilot actions that are currently experiencing new solutions to conserve forest resources, preserve and strengthen the resilience of forests. Pilot actions to be carried out in the territories (15 pilot sites are already planned) will include three types of solutions: 1/Planting new species and provenances to test their resistance in forests in the long term. This should help environments better cope with different threats. 2/Adoption of specific forestry actions to promote the adaptation and resilience of forests and the maintenance of associated ecosystem services. The aim is to improve, preserve or restore forest cover, for example by enriching the masses, which favors the mixing of species. 3/Implementing actions for the conservation of the forest genetic heritage. These actions aim to respond to important local challenges. The wide variety of forest situations (main objective of the masses, composition in species, age of the masses, etc.) and of the pedocclimatic conditions found must allow a good representativeness of the forest contexts of southwest Europe. The techniques used, the resources mobilised and the results of the pilot actions will be exploited and transferred 1) within the partnership, 2) to other local, regional and national institutions and actors and 3) to other territories of the EU through the European networks of partners and partners to facilitate their ownership. This catalogue will be integrated into the metadata base (ACT2.1) and will illustrate some of the operational recommendations of the Transnational Strategy (achievement of WG1).

Phosphate monitoring pilot jointly developed and executed in 6 SUDOE territories

Realisation 2 of Phos4Cycle seeks to establish pilot actions to improve the monitoring of phosphate flows and the forecasting of the risk of eutrophication in the river basins. It will also allow to describe the behavior of phosphorus according to different types of agricultural management in different production systems. For this purpose, a global pilot has been designed to be implemented in 6 territorial pilots (“sub”pilots) in Spain, France and Portugal. The design of the general pilot has been carried out by the BP ITAGRA, and coordinated on the one hand with the other 5 partners who together with ITAGRA will apply the design in the 6 territorial pilots, and on the other hand, with the 2 beneficiaries in charge of the analysis of soil, water and sediment samples, No 8 AQUACorp and No 9 ADERA. Each territorial pilot will be developed in a level 3 river basin, in which 3 sub-basins will be defined, one in which a traditional management will be carried out, which will serve as a reference, and another 2 with experimental management that tries to reduce phosphate pollution through responsible management. The 6 territorial pilots are shown below, including their location, responsible partner and agricultural system: Pilot 1: ES – Castilla y León – ITAGRA – REGADIO: Pilot cereal 2: ES – La Rioja – Government of La Rioja – PERMANENT CULTIVOS (VID AND OLIVO) Pilot 3: ES – Extremadura – FEDEHESA – AGROFORESTAL SYSTEM AND EXTENSIVE DEHESA Pilot 4 PT – Central/Coimbra Region – IPC (ESAC) – REGION: Horticultural Pilot 5: PT – Central Region/Aveiro – IPC (ESAC) – WINNERIA INTENSIVA DE VACUNO AND PASTO Piloto 6: FR – Nouvelle Aquitaine – ITAVI – EXTENSIVE AVICULTURE Three of the six pilots will install the AQUACorp technology for remote water analysis as part of the experimentation. This technology would reduce costs and simplify the monitoring of phosphorus associated with agro-livestock activity.

Collection and planting of herbaceous, wild and native seeds

The pilot actions will consist of the collection of seeds from native wild herbaceous plants (such as isolated species or mixtures) from harvesting grasslands of ecological interest previously identified by the partners. These collections may or may not be followed by an intermediate stage of multiplication, after which the seeds will be planted in objective plots of high biodiversity value, located in the vicinity (or, in any case, in the same biogeographical zone) for the purpose of ecological restoration. These pilot projects are innovative at various levels. First, we will work with species that are not, or are not widely available, at first. There is little to no reference to the methods of harvesting the mixtures (brushing, harvesting, hay transfer, manual harvesting) and to the methods used to grow these seeds, so our experiments will generate new knowledge. Within the framework of the Flore project, at least 4 different methods (hence the target value of this indicator) will be tested, but in each country several pilot ecological restoration sites will be created, allowing the diversification of climate and soil methods and contexts. This network of experimental sites will also be a support for the transfer of knowledge, both for the beneficiary partners of the project (through study trips) and for all interested economic operators, with the organisation of technical days. This demonstration value will be maintained in the long term, as pilot site managers will commit to ensuring the sustainability of the facilities, in particular by adopting the recommended sustainable management methods.

in France

The Gaillac experimental area, located in Tarn, France, faces a number of challenges today, including: — Water scarcity and water stress, as well as the need for adaptation to climate change. — Soils impoverished in organic matter. — Control of pests and diseases in grape crops. — Reduced grape yield and decrease in wine consumption. Through the implementation and monitoring of the improvement actions in the IV, it seeks to address these challenges and at the same time, promote biodiversity, preserve cultural heritage and strengthen the resilience of the territory to climate change. The actions will be carried out in two models of vineyards, the experimental vineyard of the IFV as a “green” model and another vineyard in Gaillac as a “conventional” model with less IV. They comprise: 1. Diagnosis of aerial biodiversity in the vineyard. 2. The development of a temperature map in the experimental vineyard to identify freshness areas and their relationship with Actions IV, as well as their impact on vines. 3. Experimental test on SSEEs provided by plant cover, such as green fertilisers and temporary or permanent herbaceous covers. Aspects such as nitrogen supply, storage and release of water for vines (using biomass, nitrogen and carbon soil analysis, humidity and temperature sensors, structural stability, etc.) and associated biodiversity will be analysed. 4. In the green vineyard, a study of the hives and a pollen analysis will be carried out to determine where the bees meet in the different Actions IV of the Vinnopôle. With these actions, we hope to move towards a more sustainable and resilient management of vineyards of high ecological value, addressing current challenges and promoting the conservation of the natural and cultural environment.

Transnational strategy for knowledge and conservation of forest genetic resources SUDOE

With the aim of protecting forest heritage and strengthening the resilience of forests in southwestern Europe, COOPTREE intends to develop a transnational strategy for the knowledge and conservation of SUDOE’s forest genetic resources. This document, which establishes common objectives and a long-term vision, aims to be a point of convergence of the approaches of the different territories to the preservation and adaptation of the forests of the SUDOE. Building on the achievements of the project, both in terms of the knowledge that will have been centralised and the knowledge that will have been generated, this transnational strategy aims to lay the foundations of an expert network that lasts over time, identify the relevant levers of action and knowledge gaps, and serve as a basis for the target territories and actors, as a directly adopted strategy, or to feed their own strategies for forest conservation and adaptation. Without prejudging the elements that emerge throughout the project, the strategy developed jointly by the partners could consist of three components: — A section on the forest context and the strategic bases being carried out in the participating territories. — A section on the knowledge gathered, which derives from the capitalisation of the knowledge already available and the knowledge generated by the project (act. 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3). — A section containing the strategic guidelines and their operational variants, which will specify the guidelines to be followed to preserve the forest resource (e.g. knowledge of genetic resources, conservation, diversification, enrichment, clearing, species substitution, etc.). The deliverables of the GT1 will feed into this realisation, as well as the outputs of the WG2 (pilot actions) will be able to illustrate some of the operational applications of the strategic guidelines developed.

Joint strategy and action plan for the management of jointly developed phosphates

Implementation 1 of Phos4Cycle seeks to develop a common strategy and an action plan for the management of phosphates associated with agricultural and livestock activity in rural areas to improve agricultural practices by applying preventive measures to reduce the transfer of forms of phosphorus to the aquatic environment, as well as corrective measures in water masses with a polluting presence. Beneficiary No 4 CPI shall coordinate the joint work of all partners. In addition, the strategy will include specific guidelines for reducing phosphate pollution in different agro-livestock production systems. Each partner will contribute to the definition of guidelines in the systems experienced in each pilot: dairy production (IPC-CALCOB), horticultural production (IPC-CALCOB), irrigated cereal production (ITAGRA), dehesa production (FEDEHESA), permanent woody crop production (DGAG_GR) and poultry production systems (ITAVI), making them more competitive. All these production systems are essential in the economy of the SUDOE area. The Action Plan, jointly developed by the partners to facilitate the adoption of the strategy, will then be adapted by each partner into a roadmap for each territory (WG3).

Strategy for authorities wishing to make them sustainable solve them

A medium/long term strategy (from 3 to 8 years) will be jointly developed based on the sharing of the results of our multi-stakeholder group animation work at transnational level. Its main objective will be to guide professionals (landscapers, consultants, public and private buyers, scientists, local development associations, site managers) and decision makers (elected representatives, company managers, etc.) towards the means of action available to them to support the long-term viability of the technical solutions tested during the project (collection, planting and monitoring of local indigenous herbaceous seeds, etc.). This strategy will define realistic objectives (taking into account the constraints of these stakeholders) but ambitious enough to support the development of the proposed solutions. It could be broken down into several action plans, tailored to each type of public concerned and their respective areas of competence. We will identify a number of economic and public policy levers that can support this strategy. To facilitate its implementation, the strategy will be accompanied by a number of resources available in open access: training modules for field workers and decision makers, awareness-raising content, a letter of engagement, feedback from multi-stakeholder groups, etc.

Strategy and Action Plan for the implementation of IV in vineyards of high ecological value.

It will be carried out the elaboration of a Strategy and Action Plan to implement IV in vineyards of high ecological value in the SUDOE territory. This strategy will serve as a guide for the wine sector and authorities interested in improving SSEEs in vineyards, and will become an inspirational model for other regions. Key steps in strategy development include: 1. Study of European and Regional Strategies: Strategies will be examined at European and consortium countries level to identify successful practices. 2. Lessons Learned: Lessons learned during the project participation project will be incorporated into the strategy. 3. Strategic Objectives: Objectives addressing ecosystem protection, SSEE promotion and social welfare will be defined. 4. Strategic Lines: Strategic guidelines for the implementation of IV will be established. The Action Plan shall include: — Actions: Details of concrete actions, pilot projects and IV programmes. — Calendar: Deadlines for implementation of each action. — Responsibilities: Assigning roles to the actors involved. — Appeals: Identification of necessary human, financial and technical resources. In addition, specific dissemination activities will be carried out, such as the creation of a brochure, an informative video, microvideos with local testimonies, a final event, days in wine denominations of origin, contracts with specialised media and events in the cross-border area of Arribes and Alto Douro to share the results and benefits of the strategy approach. In short, the strategy and action plan seek to promote sustainability and quality in SUDOE vineyards through IV, leveraging previous knowledge and sharing lessons learned with the sector and local authorities.

Strategic transfer plan

The development of a joint transnational strategy aimed at promoting local development of local development through the generation, storage and use of green hydrogen as an integrated energy vector in local energy communities contributes to the RC083 Programme Performance Indicator. The strategic plan will build on the outcomes and learnings of the WG1 preparatory studies and the implementation of the predictive platform and hydrogen integration models. In this sense, it seeks to offer individualised solutions to energy communities, with special attention to rural areas, starting from the previous analysis of the context and challenges of the Sudoe space. In addition, the testing of the pilot actions will allow to establish strategic actions for their replicability in other regions and in the energy communities identified previously. The strategic plan will be disseminated to companies in the sector, clusters, educational and R & D institutions, partnerships and especially between competent authorities, energy agencies and CELs with transferability potential.
