Transnational cooperation is essential to address in a representative and coordinated way each of the phases required for emissions risk management. The partnership consists of different specialists and each partner has a key role in the project, a specific specialisation that allows for a multidisciplinary approach and a robust model with different scenarios and conditions.


WP.1 Estimation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission risk

1.Database of vulnerability of forest ecosystems together with the quantification of carbon in vegetation and soils in the different study regions.
2. Determination and calculation of vulnerable areas, severity and post-fire resilience.
3. Emission risk model methodology.
4. Analysis of the documentation derived from the literature review for the validation of the model.
5. Iniatiation of the generation of a common spatial data infrastructure.

WP.2 Pilot areas in cross-border cooperation

1. Methodology and selection of pilot plots.
2. Methodology for sampling and type of analysis of the plots.
3.Common database of good practices after a fire.
4. Analysis of carbon variation over time.

WT.3 Development of GHG emission prevention and risk management guidelines

1. Best management practices that may affect emission risk.
2. Identification of national and local legisltaion linked to the implementation of best practices.
3. Regional/national and transnational working group.
4. Political action days with the aim of addressing the inclusion of GHG emission risk from forest fires in relevant policies, targeting municipalities.

WP.4 Capitalization and transfer

1. Proposal of courses and/or seminars, mainly addressed to technicians and administrations on REMAS methodology and results.
2. Transnational platform to coordinate public administrations in risk management.

Project outputs

1. Greenhouse gas emission risk estimation methodology.
2. Technical and scientific publications.
3. Action protocol to minimise GHG emissions.
4. Transnational action plan for the inclusion of emission risk in planning and sustainable forest management strategies in the REMAS-SUDOE regions.
5. Training of technical staff and competent authorities in prevention and management and emission risk reduction.
6. Establishment of a platform for emission risk management with authorities.
