Strategy for the prevention of fires in the Sudoe through the improvement of forest spaces

Description

In the last decade (2012-2022), Sudoe countries have suffered a high number of fires, with an annual average of 222 in Spain, 213 in Portugal and 105 France, being among the 5 countries with the highest number in the EU (EFFIS). The fact that in the last 6 years there have been 3 of the worst fire seasons in the EU demonstrates the upward trend pointed out by experts and due, in part, to the effects of climate change, a situation aggravated in the Sudoe area by the progressive abandonment of rural areas and the consequent cessation of productive activities traditionally linked to the forestry sector. Given this challenge, it is crucial to adopt preventive measures appropriate to the characteristics of the European southwest (demographic crisis, abundance of forest mass, progressive increase in climatic extremes), the success of which will depend both on the knowledge of the particular constraints, and on the on-site demonstration of the effectiveness of innovative tools, potentially transferable to other areas affected by the same problem. With this perspective, USE4FOREST proposes a strategy for the prevention of fires in the Sudoe by improving forest spaces based on 3 phases: thorough knowledge of the constraints of the problem; development, testing and demonstration in the participating territories of innovative tools for the prevention, management and anticipation of forest fires; and its transfer and capitalisation on a Sudoe scale. USE4FOREST seeks to improve the responsiveness of different administrations through coordination with organisations with extensive experience in forest research and management. The analysis of different variables, such as the environment (vegetation, climate…) and anthropogenic factors (populations, crops…), will allow to reach new solutions and evaluate their impact, effectiveness and transferability, in order to develop smart prevention strategies in forest areas with the greatest risk, considering their natural, socio-economic, technological and management resources to address this need in a global way.
