Wildfires and the restoration of burnt areas
In recent years, the number and severity of forest fires in Spain have increased. One of Spain's risks is that summer is getting longer, which is when risks are at their highest. Prevention, response, and subsequent management of degraded lands, as well as technological tools for monitoring and response to optimise extinction, are of particular interest in the fight against forest fires. Nevertheless, forest management is the main backbone. It needs to be adapted to the needs and specifics of each territory and connected to its people, promoting the resistance and resilience of the territory, the recovery of soils, and the reactivation of the water cycle.
