FORRISK - Network for Innovation in Silvicultural and Forest Risks Management Systems



The objective of this project was to identify the measures taken concretely in each of the participating regions, for the management of identified and foreseeable risks and to suggest innovations to improve the management of these threats.

This objective was to be reached through different types of actions: with studies on the inventories of risk management systems, with analyzes of the main risks affecting the project areas and the development of means to fight against these risks.

The expected results of the project were:

  • An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of risk management systems in forest in each region
  • Recommendations and identification of measures to improve the recognition of the many risks in forest management
  • A network of experimental devices to improve the forms of struggle (ecological, genetic or forestry) at the plot scale with respect to the risks identified
  • Tools for risk analysis and decision support (maps, computer models) to estimate the vulnerability and contingency
  • Technical data sheets to disseminate the recommendations of the project Policy makers, managers and scientists will therefore have in their hands the tools for managing the many risks threatening the forest of their area.
