Mountain areas are among the territories most affected by natural risks and these risks are expected to increase due to the effects of climate change (more severe droughts, higher average temperatures, changes in rainfall patterns). These risks know no administrative boundaries (e.g. fires that cross the borders of continuous forest stands) and require transnational coordination.
Moreover, the SUDOE area is one of the areas of the world that is suffering and will suffer most from the effects of climate change (IPCC, 2014).
By reinforcing a risk-based approach considering climate change, the project aligns with international agreements such as the UN Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
The MONTCLIMA project will develop the first transnational strategic framework for the prevention and management of natural risks in mountain areas for the SUDOE territory.
