Title: Deliverable 7.3-2.2 Assessment document on territorial consequences of legislation and spatial policy instruments implementation at the management level.
Subject: [FIRE PARADOX Deliverables, Fire Paradox Modules, Module 7 - Policies and practices assessment, WP7.3 - Territorial policies and practices: pros and cons related to fire propagation]
Description: The approach of this study is linked to content of the deliverable 7.3-1.1: Assessment document on the main strengths and weaknesses of the legislation and spatial policy instruments concerning wildfire integrated management in the EU, in European member states and in North African countries, which objective is to propose a transectorial point of view of the wildfire risk management in order to contribute with valid recomendations for specific territorial contexts. The conclusions obtained at European and national scale (7.3.-1.1) should be complemented with the management of these policies at a local scale, where the real application of these policies is verified, the real coordination problems show up and the coordination and synergy possibilities appear. Related to these precedents, the approach carried on has consisted in the analysis at a local scale of the definition and implementation of these territorial policies that have a direct influence on the conditions of ignition and propagation of wildfires (forest management policies, territorial planning and rural development). It is pretended to carry on a global assessment of the possibilities of public intervention of reducing the risk of an specific area through the joint application of these policies. There have been two case studies carried on. The first one is about the Solsonès region (Catalonia, Spain) and the second one about the forest massif of Tanghaya-Kourt (North of Morocco). In both cases it has been made a territorial and a wildfire incidence characterization in order to analyze the public intervention in the territory through the different plans and policies developed in the area. This approach has allowed evaluating the real possibilities of an intervention over the risk of ignition and propagation of wildfires from a multisectorial view. It has also allowed evaluating the necessary modulation on the definition and application of these policies based on the territorial and socioeconomic characteristics of specific intervention areas. All of it has made possible to formulate a series of conclusions and recommendations about policies coordination and synergies, as well as about the scale in which should be finally be defined the application of these policies.
