SocialForest

Comprehensive fight against the impact of climate change on forest areas of the SUDOE space

Summary

The forest systems of the SUDOE space are affected by specific climate risks such as droughts, pests, fires, the risk of desertification and biodiversity loss. These are aggravated by other socio-economic circumstances such as rural abandonment and the loss of the landscape in mosaic of the mountains, the lack of management of the forest masses by both public and private owners, and the problems of commercialisation, loss of competitiveness and lack of labour in agroforestry systems. Although the risks associated with climate differ in intensity and frequency between regions, for all the territories of the project (Region of Murcia, Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León, Alentejo, Occitania and Nueva Aquitaine), these risks present challenges in terms of agroforestry and associated biodiversity, forest management and socio-economic development. The objective of SocialForest is to contribute to climate adaptation in Spain (Castilla La-Mancha, Castilla y León, Region of Murcia), France (Occitania and Nueva Aquitaine) and Portugal (Alentejo) by developing a comprehensive forest management strategy, which increases resilience to climate change while enhancing the socio-economic development of rural areas. The feasibility of the selected measures will be planned and demonstrated through the development of 7 pilot actions. The pilot actions will address both biophysical and social risks of the territory and will be designed thanks to transnational cooperation. They will be implemented through the combined use of cutting-edge methodologies such as remote sensing, decision support software Café (quantifier of forest ecosystem services), reflectometry sensors and strategies for relinking exiled owners with their forest heritage (digital marketing strategy to contact and motivate to develop adaptive forest management).
