The overall objective of the project LIFE11+ ENV/IT/000215 RESILFORMED – Resilience of Mediterranean forests to climate change is to preserve the forest systems from the risks due to climate change, through naturalization processes, increased biodiversity and improved responsiveness, in the recovery process, coming from destabilizing events. The specific objective is to implement a regional forest policy able to increase resilience capacity of Sicilian forests, improving their ecosystem capacity and fostering the biodiversity preservation. The project has proposed to pursue five concrete results: 1) drafting guidelines for effective Mediterranean forest management with respect to climate change; 2) update of the Regional Forest Plan; 3) creation of a set of demonstration areas, representative of the main forest categories, for the application evaluation of best management practices aiming at improving the resilience of forest ecosystems; 4) improving the awareness of regional operators through theoretical and practical training activities; 5) information and sensitization of rural people.
