Wildfires are mainly a man-induced phenomenon, and only 2% are caused by lightning, as seen in the CUFAA (Comando Unità per la tutela Forestale, Ambientale e Agroalimentare) report 2020. In the last few decades, wildfire behavior has been strongly affected by climate change effects. The Interreg IT-FR Maritime MED-STAR project aims to strengthen capacities in fire forecasting, prevention, and suppression. The specific objective of this participatory research is to increase local actors’ awareness and management ability of the territory, in order to make it less fire-prone. Moreover, the development of a new approach to the public land use, based on care and sharing, by locals and tourists, is intended.
