Discover the activities performed by LIFE MIDMACC project

On 25th February of 2021, the second meeting of the Supra-regional Working Group was held virtually with 10 representatives from all three territories participating in the project: Catalonia, Aragon and La Rioja.
One of the main objectives of the LIFE MIDMACC project is the implementation and testing of different landscape management measures to meet climate change related challenges and to improve socioeconomic development in mid-mountain areas of Spain. One of these adaptations measures is based in the use of different agronomic practices such as green soil coverage, slope management (terraces) or training systems, while maintaining a high level of competitiveness and quality. In Catalonia, this pilot experience is carried out in three vineyards belonging to Celler Espelt (Roses, Alt Empordà), Celler cooperatiu d’Espolla (Espolla, Alt Empordà) and Llivins (Llívia, Cerdanya).
One of the main objectives of the LIFE MIDMACC project is the implementation and testing of different landscape management measures to meet climate change related challenges and to improve socioeconomic development in mid-mountain areas of Spain. One of these adaptation measures is based on the conversion of a scrubland area to a vineyard in mid-mountain areas (as an adaptation for vineyards to temperature increases in Mediterranean areas). In addition, different agronomical practices carried out in long-established vineyards will be also evaluated. In La Rioja, this pilot experience is carried out in two vineyards belonging to San Prudencio (Clavijo) and Dinastia Vivanco (Tudelilla) wineries.
One of the main objectives of the LIFE MIDMACC project is the implementation and testing of different landscape management measures to meet climate change related challenges and to improve socioeconomic development in mid-mountain areas of Spain. One of these adaptation measures is the application of scrubland clearing to promote extensive livestock, for fire risk prevention and other environmental issues (soil quality, landscape structure, water resources). In La Rioja, this pilot experience is carried out in two locations: San Román de Cameros (calcareous soils) and Ajamil (siliceous soils); both sites are located in the Leza Valley (La Rioja, Spain).
One of the main objectives of the LIFE MIDMACC project is the implementation and testing of different landscape management measures to meet climate change related challenges and to improve socioeconomic development in mid-mountain areas of Spain. One of these adaptation measures is the application of shrub clearing to promote extensive livestock, for fire risk prevention and other environmental issues (soil quality, landscape structure, water resources). In Aragón, this pilot experience is located in “La Garcipollera” Research Station (Government of Aragón) (Central Pyrenees, Huesca, Spain).
One of the main objectives of the LIFE MIDMACC project is the implementation and testing of different landscape management measures to meet climate change related challenges and to improve socioeconomic development in mid-mountain areas of Spain. One of these adaptation measures is the application of forest management for fire risk prevention and promotion of extensive livestock in Mediterranean mid-mountain areas. In Aragón, this pilot experience is being carried out in “La Garcipollera” Research Station (Government of Aragón) (Central Pyrenees, Huesca, Spain).
