Fireadapt

France

Organisers

The Mediterranean region of France compromise four regions with characteristic fire regimes and associated challenges: Corsica (extremely fire-prone, high forest cover, complex topography), Provence (extremely fire-prone, densely populated, tourism), Languedoc (winddriven fires), and mountains (Alps and Pyrenees, fire-prone, complex topography, high biodiversity, rural economies). This SH will realise a tour with activities (workshops, WP meetings) around selected regions (when possible, also used for other EU projects such as FireEUrisk) and be a host for knowledge exchange activities between scientists, practitioners, communities and policymakers, and field data collection on carbon dynamics and biodiversity impacts.
