INFORMED Collaborative Project kicks off
INFORMED (INtegrated research on FOrest Resilience and Management in the mEDiterranean) is a Collaborative Project funded by a FORESTERRA Call launched in November 2013. The project was launched at a kick-off meeting in Barcelona, 9-11 March 2015.
INFORMED's scientific objectives are to:
- fill in knowledge gaps on the basic mechanisms that determine the flexibility of the social-ecological system in response to disturbance
- integrate knowledge by combining different process-based models at various spatial and temporal scales
- use integrated knowledge to develop management strategies as well as policy and governance guidelines to foster forest system resilience.
The project is conducted by a consortium of 15 partners from 10 countries from both sides of the Mediterranean.
