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.

Throughout the SUDOE territory, the second half of June 2022 is being suffocating.The heatwave, which has been raging for several days, has caused record temperatures of up to 43°C in Spain and southern France, but also in Germany, Italy and the UK.In Biarritz, one of the most popular seaside resorts in the south of France, a record high of 42.9°C was recorded, according to Météo-France.Heat records for June were broken in France on Friday in at least 11 municipalities, including Carcassonne, where it reached 40.4°C: "This is the earliest heatwave recorded in France since 1947," said Matthi

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).
