The province of Soria will be the location where, for four years, a collaborative initiative will be implemented with the aim of increasing the resilience of forest stands to climate change, with the inclusion of adaptive measures in public and private forest management plans as its goal.
The LIFE Soria ForestAdapt project aims to increase the resilience of southern European forests to climate change by including adaptive measures in public and private forest management plans.
The foundation for a gradual modification of forest management plans throughout the province of Soria will be used as a technical reference for forest management with climate change adaptation measures, as this province has been an example of forest management since the Middle Ages.
The project will cover 200,000 hectares of public forest and will also have an impact on afforestation programs on private lands, especially agricultural lands.
The aim is to extend the model to the rest of the Region of Castile and Leon, and to the rest of Spain and southern Europe.
