Restoration

Due to sometimes centuries of degradation, some areas require concerted efforts to replant, re-diversify, and restore the health of forest ecosystems, while adapting them to new conditions brought by global changes. Improving the integrity of forest goods and services in the Mediterranean can also promote rural development and continued sustainable management.
