The aim of PLURIFOR is to help with the development of regional and transnational risk management plans for forest area susceptible to biotic and abiotic hazards.

REINFFORCE - Resource INFrastructures for monitoring, adapting and protecting European Atlantic FORests under Changing climatE

The REINFFORCE project pools the capacity of 12 forest organizations and research institutes along 4 countries (Portugal, Spain, France, and United Kingdom) to face the transnational issue of the adaptation to climate change impacts on Atlantic forests.

STORMS - Destructive Storms in European Forests – Past and Forthcoming Impacts

The project aimed  to understand the nature of the wind damage risk to European forest, how this risk might change, the social, environmental and economic impacts of that change and the role policy instruments can play in reducing that risk and speeding up recovery following storm events.

The final results of the projects are available here: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/forests/fprotection.htm (last visited 27.7.2018)

IMACFORD - Improving and Advancing Co-ordination of Forest Research and Development in Europe

The aim of the project was to develop an integrated, innovative pan-European research network, which contributed to the emerging European Research Area.  Input from representatives of industries, end-users of research and other stakeholders was an integral part of its work. The project had the following general objectives:

XyloWeb - Communication autour des démarches prospectives sur le massif Landais (Communication about forecasting studies in Aquitaine Maritime pine forest)

The Xyloweb-project aimed to bring together information on ongoing forecasting activities in the maritime pine area of Aquitaine, France. The work was based on a forecasting exercise carried out by the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) in 2010 following the storm Klaus and on the work carried out within the INTEGRAL-project which looked at the future oriented management of European forest landscapes.

One of the project’s main outcomes was a website demonstrating the benefit of forecasting activities.
