An online platform with information on Mediterranean forest landscape topicsJanuary 08, 2020
Eighteen sites have joined forces to preserve the high ecological value of Mediterranean forests, essential ecosystems for the survival of all of us. Together, these sites are Medforval – a network of Mediterranean forest landscapes and forests with high ecological value. The Network was established in 2015 with the support of the MAVA Foundation, and was re-launched in May 2019. The secretariat, first under AIFM, is now headed by Istituto Oikos.
This new phase of the Network will facilitate the exchange of experience and good practices between members to better protect, manage and restore forest sites, and will ensure continuity with the previous phase of the Network. The Medforval website has also been completely restructured. It is a useful tool with which to investigate issues related to Mediterranean forests through updates, studies, documents and publications. It has information on the current Medforval member sites; materials produced by the sites themselves and by the broader Mediterranean forest sector are available to download.
