SOS Prodehesa Montado

Programme: Interreg VA España-Portugal (POCTEP)

MODELS OF INTEGRAL SUSTAINABILITY AND RESILIENCE OF THE DEHESA-MONTADO IN THE FACE OF CLIMATE HAZARDS.

(01/09/2023-31/08/2025) Budget: 2.372.409,07€

Introduction:

The dehesa-montado, which occupies 30% of the surface area of Extremadura and the Alentejo, is a crucial habitat and production system. This environment not only generates employment in rural areas and contributes to population fixation, but also provides various ecosystem services and is home to a rich biodiversity. Given its vast size and intrinsic characteristics, it has considerable potential in preventing risks that increasingly affect the cross-border territory, such as fires, floods or desertification. It also plays a significant role in mitigating these risks through its ability to sequester carbon.

However, climate change poses a serious threat to the survival of this system. Lack of regeneration is worsening, tree and animal diseases are increasing, and there is a progressive degradation of soils and pastures. These challenges, in turn, contribute to a crisis in the productive activities and social fabric that sustain this unique ecosystem.

Main Objetive:

The main objective of the project is:

– To implement and disseminate actions that contribute to the restoration, adaptation to climate change and enhancement of the dehesa-montado, as a way for its preservation and its economic and environmental resilience, and for the creation of territorial resilience.

SOS_PRODEHESAMONTADO proposes solutions to key factors for the resilience of the system:

  • The low success rate of tree regeneration and its diseases,
  • The degradation of soils and pastures,
  • The regulatory difficulties that block their adaptation,
  • The low recognition and compensation for the environmental benefits provided,
  • Difficulties in adaptive management due to ownership issues,
  • The scarce generational changeover, low training,
  • poor communication between key actors.
