The main goal of LIFE GoProFor MED is to find close to nature management models, which are flexible and shared among representative countries of the Mediterranean area: Italy, Spain, France and Greece. The project has identified 4 forest habitats among the most representative and unique of the Mediterranean Biogeographical Region: Quercus suber forests (9330), Quercus ilex and Quercus rotundifolia forests (9340), Castanea sativa woods (9260), (Sub-) Mediterranean pine forests with endemic black pines (9530*).
Specific actions, shared by all the partners, are going to be conducted in the 4 selected habitats to better their conservation status, or at least to prevent an additional deterioration. These conservation practices will be experimental, demonstrative and are going to be disseminated through formative activities that will take place in all the partner countries. This will create a network of shared experiences among Natura 2000 managers and technical consultants.
