Course: ‘Management strategies to improve the resilience of Mediterranean forests’

Monday, April 15, 2024 to Saturday, April 20, 2024

Episodes of drought, fires and plagues as a result of climate change are a threat to the Mediterranean climate forest, which is added to centuries-old human action. This is is the focus of the international course ‘Management strategies to improve the resilience of Mediterranean forests’, that CREAF co organizes together with CIHEAM Zaragoza in from 15th to 20th April 2024, in collaboration with EFIMed. It is increasingly critical to promote the forest resilience concept –the ability to assimilate disturbances and pressures and to adapt, maintaining essential functions– specially on territories of Mediterranean climate, linked to a sea which warms 20% faster than the rest of the world’s marine waters.

The course is both in-person and online, and registrations are open until February 16, 2024 on the CIHEAM Zaragoza website.

The course is aimed at people with political responsibility in environmental aspects, public or private research professionals, public administration specialists, NGO and any professional involved in planning and managing forest ecosystems in territories with a Mediterranean climate.

The teaching staff is made up of scientists from BOKU Austria (Eugenio Díaz-Pines), Centre de la Propietat Forestal (Teresa Cervera), Centre de Ciència i Tecnologia Forestal de Catalunya (Míriam Piqué), CREAF (Josep M. Espelta),EFIMed (Magda Bou Dagher Kharrat), INRAE Avignon (François Lefèvre), Instituto Pirenaico de Ecología (Jesús J. Camarero), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona i CREAF (Francisco Lloret), Universitat de Barcelona (Beatriz Duguy) and the University off Lisbon (Manuela Branco and Francisco Rego).
