Growing solutions to achieve resilient Mediterranean landscapes
An estimated 40 % of Europe’s land surface is forested. Also, farms in the EU covered more than a third of the total EU land area in 2020. No doubt, farmers and foresters are key to landscape resilience. The EU-funded ResAlliance project will facilitate information and knowledge flow and increase the awareness, understanding and capacity of farmers and foresters on landscape resilience in the countries of the Mediterranean basin. More specifically, researchers will assess knowledge and practice needs with special emphasis on measures against hazards caused by climate change. The project will also create a Mediterranean thematic network on landscape resilience for forestry and agriculture: LandNet. Its members will exchange technological, managerial, financial and governance solutions through different channels and events, while growing new cooperations and networks.
