The LIFE RedBosques_Clima project aims to achieve greater adaptive capacity to climate change in forests by promoting forest management with conservation objectives (promoting maturity, increasing heterogeneity and biodiversity) under the umbrella of the concept of “Ecosystem-based Adaptation”.
We will create tools to evaluate the forest’s vulnerability to climate change, to ensure quality and efficiency in our adaptation measures.
1) Creation of a resilient landscape in Els Ports Nature Park, Tarragona.
2) Improvement of the adaptation capacity in reforested areas in Castellón, Valencia y Alicante.
3) Forest restoration for climate change adaptation in Sierra Norte de Guadalajara Nature Park.
To this end, three specific objectives are proposed, subordinate to the main one, with an objective specifically dedicated to the transferability of the project results:
Implement these tools (vulnerability assessment and standard for adaptation measures) in several pilot cases of adaptation to climate change, selected in three representative situations – and therefore easily replicable – of the most frequent conservation status of Spanish forests, with the participation of the responsible administrations, owners and other local agents.
