Networks of knowledge and training for the effective management of Mediterranean forest habitats of Nature 2000

The project's main goal is to improve the management of forests in the Spanish Mediterranean region included in the Natura 2000 network.

Introduction

The project's main goal is to improve the management of forests in the Spanish Mediterranean region included in the Natura 2000 network, so that objectives of biodiversity conservation and adaptation to climate change are incorporated. This goal is approached through improved training of Natura 2000 managers, and development of management tools for Natura 2000 forest areas, which explicitly incorporate scientific knowledge and expertise to improve management effectiveness. 

To achieve this goal several subordinate objectives have been defined:

  1. Providing benchmarks for evaluating conservation status of Mediterranean forest habitats.
  2. Incorporating criteria for biodiversity conservation and adaptation to climate change in forest planning and management.
  3. Ensuring the transfer of knowledge to the target audience and stakeholders.
