Comprehensive Restoration Policy for Forest Fires
Comprehensive Restoration Policy for Forest Fires
Forest fires are one of the most important ecological factors that have been influencing Mediterranean type ecosystems for centuries. However, the number and severity of forest fires increase every year as a result of several drivers as climate change and the increase in human activities in forest areas. Because of fires, not only forests, but also the biodiversity in forest and maquis ecosystems as well as forest villagers who benefit from the non-wood products provided by the forests are negatively affected. For this reason, post-fire restoration practices should be handled with multifaceted inclusive, ecological and socio-economic approaches. Within the scope of this project, non-wood forest products that villagers benefit from forests through conducting interviews where forest fires occurred in Mu?la will be revealed. In addition, good practices by comparing different post-fire restoration practices applied in the past years in terms of biodiversity will be identify. As a result of the debates and the workshop within this project, a road map will be developed for ecological restoration works which takes into account both the needs for non-wood forest products of the local people and the enrichment of the burned areas in terms of biodiversity. Moreover, a communication strategy and advocacy activities in order to increase the effectiveness of non-governmental organizations in post-fire situations will be established
