Final seminar summary

Final seminar animation


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.


On the 23rd of November 2022, the final seminar of MONTCLIMA was held in cité administrative of Toulouse followed by a field visit of the STePRIM programme: "Territorial strategy for mountain risk prevention" in Bagnères de Luchon on the 24th of November. After 42 months of hard work between 9 partners from France, Spain, Andorra and Portugal, this event was a great opportunity to proudly present the project final results, meet the project partners and exchange knowledge with the main actors and experts in the field.

In Europe like in Africa and Asia, droughts have been a recurrent topic in recent years, having real tangible impacts on our daily lives.

Although droughts occur naturally as part of the water cycle in all climatic zones, yet it is reported that climate change is accelerating their severity and occurrences with significant impacts at the global scale. Scientists stated an increase in the risks of droughts due to decline in precipitation and rising temperatures.

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).
