In particular, the project objectives are:

1. Developing, implementing and demonstrating innovative forest management techniques

2. Developing new tools for integrating the adaptation to climate change of Sub-humid Mediterranean forests in the policy and legal framework related to forest management.

3. Develop new tools to strengthen the economics of forest management, linked to the products that sub-humid Mediterranean forests can provide, in order to foster the economic sustainability in the mid and long term of forest management aiming at climate change adaptation, and to prevent the abandonment of forest activities.

4. To transfer the implemented techniques and the developed tools to the main regional and European stakeholders
