MONTCLIMA

Mountain areas are among the territories most affected by natural hazards and these risks are expected to increase due to the effects of climate change (more severe droughts, higher average temperatures, and changes in the rainfall patterns). These risks do not respect administrative limits (for example, fires that cross borders in continuous forest areas) and need transnational coordination.

Mountains are highly vulnerable to natural risks, which are becoming more intense due to climate change. The risk comes from the encounter between a natural phenomenon and the infrastructures and services that occupy the territory. Natural phenomena cause environmental damage, but also social and economic losses. Southwest Europe is one of the areas of the world suffering most from the effects of climate change. Its mountain areas are threatened by four main risks: drought, forest fires, erosion and flooding.

The Baillmarsane catchment area is located in the foothills of the Canigou mountain in the Pyrénées- Orientales. It is a very dynamic catchment in terms of torrentiality, erosion and land movements. In January 2020, the Baillmarsane was impacted by storm Gloria, which was very intense in terms of rainfall and snowfall, unusual for the winter season. In some places, the equivalent of 4 to 5 months of rain fell in 72 hours, which generated exceptional flooding on the scale of the department.

OBJECTIVES

The project aims to strengthen the resilience of the SUDOE mountain territories through a transnational strategic framework based on capitalizing on previous successful projects for the prevention and management of natural climate risks (fires, droughts, flooding and erosion).
