Natural forest regrowth on abandoned land represents a major land use change in, some regions of Europe. This is driven by various factors related to land abandonment, particularly changing socioeconomic conditions for agriculture and rural depopulation., Little research exists about how the issue is addressed at the policy level. This paper, looks...
Algunas características específicas del sector forestal conllevan retos para articular la demanda y provisión de servicios ecosistémicos. Principalmente debido a la gran fragmentación de la propiedad, pero también a las prácticas dispersas de recolección de frutos silvestres, o las externalidades de adyacencia derivadas de los trabajos silvícolas....
Mediterranean territories have co-evolved and been shaped by fire throughout history. However, global environmental change conditions are increasing the size, intensity and severity of wildfires, which have gone from a regular natural disturbance to a serious threat for civil protection, surpassing firefighting capacities. Therefore, building resil...
The abandonment of agricultural land leads to landscape changes in many parts of Europe, often followed by natural forest regrowth. These landscape changes have far-reaching social and ecological consequences. Our research addresses the question of how local actor groups involved in land management perceive natural forest regrowth on abandoned land...
1. European forests are expanding and becoming denser following the widespread abandonment of farmland and rural areas. Spontaneous forest regrowth provides a cost-effective opportunity to restore ecosystems, enhance multifunctionality and sustainability and mitigate climate change. Yet, little is known about the goods and services that such forest...
This report presents the lessons learnt from the local workshops held by the seven social innovation actions on grassroots initiatives across Europe and the Mediterranean basin. In total 11 workshops held and have attracted more than 170 participants from across the range of relevant backgrounds and responsibilities in policy, business, civic socie...
Innovation actions within European Horizon 2020 (H2020) projects aim at testing research results in practice. When supporting social innovations in rural areas, such testing requires the alignment of several rural actors in order to entail behavioral changes beyond the individual level. Recently, social innovation has been recognized as an importan...
This report presents analyses of the experiences of the seven Social Innovation Actions undertaken in the SIMRA project. The aim of the report is to pool the knowledge gained in the practical implementation of Social Innovations in marginalised rural areas. As a result of the analysis, several elements have emerged as crucial for Social Innovation...
In the field of global environmental governance, a plethora of international regimes have emerged over the past decades. In some issue areas, multiple regimes aim to govern the issue, sometimes reinforcing, oftentimes conflicting with each other. Consequently, international regime complexes are an empirical phenomenon, which are inherently characte...
In this report we present results of evaluation of 11 Social Innovation Case Studies. The assessments of the Social Innovations were based upon three main blocks. The first step of the evaluation of the social innovation initiative focuses on five evaluation criteria: Relevance, Efficiency, Effectiveness, Impacts and Sustainability (REEIS). This wa...

Constituidas en forma de asociación, están formadas por ayuntamientos, propietarios foresta...
This study aims at describing this IFRC in a qualitative way, by developing a new methodology, trying to explore new fields that could be related to forestry but had not been so much explored in the past. The goal in this study is two-folded. First of all we aim at developing a new updated map of the IFRC, and then analyze the interactions among th...
This group brings together interested summer school participants to stay in touch and facilitate continious exchange.
