BACKGROUND

European forests play a crucial role in Europe’s carbon balances—with a climate change (CC) mitigation impact that accounts for 13% of all EU emissions—thanks mainly to their carbon storage capacity, their carbon fixation in trees and in wood products, and their replacement of fossil fuels. However, in recent years the first symptoms of carbon sink saturation have been observed in them and all signs indicate that the situation will only get worse. To reverse this trend it is necessary to implement forest management practices designed to strengthen the capacity of forests to mitigate the effects of climate change, even though there are currently no specific incentives in place to ensure good management and guarantee forest profitability in the Mediterranean context.
