Fires represent a threat to several Mediterranean ecosystems. The combination of unmanaged vegetation, land abandonment, and the increase in the amount and continuity of flammable fuels contribute to increasing fire proneness.

This work was conducted under the framework of the Med-Foreste project, aiming to address and improve the ability of public institutions to manage fire risk and handle future choices about prevention in fire-prone areas affected by strong touristic pressure.
