A Workshop for the Conservation and Management of Mediterranean Habitats  

The European Union recently published new Guidelines on Closer-to-Nature Forest Management “to promote biodiversity-friendly and adaptive forest management as part of a common framework for closer-to-nature forest management”. 

Although it is relatively common in Central Europe, it has been sparsely adopted in Southern Europe and remains limited to local experiences. 


The activities of the LIFE GoProForMED project converge with what is hoped for by the EU. 

The primary aim of the project is, indeed, to improving the conservation status of four target forest habitats in the Mediterranean Biogeographic Region through the application of “close to nature” management models. 

About a year after the start of the LIFE project activities, GoProForMED organises a workshop to present the first results, with specific reference to the planning and characterisation of the elements of the ecological network for the conservation of forest habitats and their biodiversity. 

The workshop will also address some of the main challenges faced by Mediterranean forests: forest fires and grazing. These two aspects, combined with the forest management models promoted by the project, constitute the main challenges for ensuring the conservation of biodiversity in Mediterranean forests. 


The workshop will take place on December 4th, 2023, in Monte Pisanu (SS) and can be attended in person or online, with simultaneous English/Italian translation services.
