It presents the project Life eCOadapt50 at a day on the forests and the climatic change at the Mesh of Natural Parks of Barcelona's Deputation
Barcelona's the Deputation organises the Thursday 14 of March in the morning the technical Day “climatic Change and forests at the Mesh of Natural Parks of Barcelona's Deputation. Evidences. Experiences. Life eCOadapt50”. The day, that will make at the Paranimf of the Industrial School, has for objective present the most representative experiences realitzadesen these parks that have a direct account with the impact of the climatic change at the natural systems, especially the forests, and present the project Life eCOadapt50. It is necessary to inscribe previously by means of the form of inscription.

The Mesh of Natural Parks of Barcelona's Deputation receives a big diversity of habitats that extend since the Mediterranean command until the boreoalpí. Along the last years is observing how the effects of the climatic change have a main affectation at the forests, so much for his frequency how for his stretch. Dire phenomenons how the storm Glòria of the year 2020, a main incidence of pests how the of the escolítids perforadors of the pine pinyer at the Maresme, the reiteration of the forest fires and the dire drought that are living are a threat for the persistence of the ongoing forests. Meet the effects and the vulnerabilities in front of the climatic change is key to promote the conservation of our forest systems making them more resilients.

For years, distinct squads of enquiry have carried out a big diversity of ecological follow-ups, surveys and executive projects on the themed the results of which will present at this meeting, with the purpose to be able to advance at the adaptation of the forests at the ongoing context of main severity of the impacts of the climatic change. The scientific ken shared and the experience at direct management of the natural rooms have to permit continue working to define a strategy to adapt the forests at the climatic change, accompanying acts how the European project Life eCOadapt50 at distinct Catalan territories.

Experiences and acts
