A successful workshop was held in Hammamet, Tunisia; on March 14-17, 2023. The TREEADS partner Universitat de Girona was there to represent the project with a presentation entitled “Post-fire Decision Support System, TREEADS solution tool for post-fire management.”
During the meeting, the attendees were up to 35, including researchers and scientists from universities and research institutes that work on the restoration of degraded landscapes in the Mediterranean. Experts from Ministries of Agriculture or Environment of Mediterranean countries responsible for or involved in restoration initiatives and projects attended the workshop as well.
The main aim of the workshop was to share knowledge related to the restoration of degraded Mediterranean forest landscapes with a focus on how to assess and plan restoration, which interventions should be chosen, ANR, and also the role of forest genetic resources: what is ANR, when is ANR appropriate, factors to consider in setting up ANR, basic procedures to put in place, post-fire restoration strategies, recovery and improvement of biodiversity, financial resources available for ANR and restoration.
The scope of this workshop was to help participants better understand the context of Mediterranean forest and landscape restoration, as well as to focus on effective and cost-effective restoration and rehabilitation of forests and biodiversity.
Finally, the workshop was a great opportunity to share experiences and expertise, thus contributing to regional dynamics and knowledge sharing.
Many thanks for this meaningful workshop. The TREEADS project aims to contribute in any possible way to management practices for the restoration of degraded Mediterranean forest landscapes.
