Press release: Local government officials demand that EU policies further support pastoralism to preserve a living rural fabric

​​Le Comité européen des régions, à l’initiative de Jacques Blanc (FR / PPE), maire de La Canourgue, a adopté à l’unanimité l’avis sur le pastoralisme lors de la session plénière d’octobre. La préservation de l’activité pastorale est nécessaire pour maintenir l’agriculture sur l’ensemble du territoire afin de préserver un tissu rural vivant , mais aussi pour atteindre nos objectifs environnementaux et climatiques soulignent les responsables des gouvernements locaux. Le maintien de l’activité pastorale permet également le développement du tourisme dans les zones rurales et la lutte contre les incendies et les avalanches. La politique agricole commune (PAC), mais aussi la politique environnementale et sociale doivent donc davantage prendre en compte le pastoralisme.

Press Release: Wildfires destroy protective effect of forest roots on soils

Forest root systems increase soil strength and stability, thus protecting mountainous regions against gravitational natural hazards, such as landslides. However, tree roots are affected by factors such as soil properties, climate and disturbances, such as timber-harvesting or wildfire — and, as a result, a forest’s stabilising effect can vary greatly. This study of fire-disturbed beech forests explores how this effect changes over time. The results reveal that forests which have suffered moderate and severe wildfires completely lose their protective function within 15 years, placing those regions at high risk of landslide for up to 50 years after the fires.
