Over the next few decades, a generalized increase in fire danger and burned area is expected over Southern Europe. This growing risk has led the Italy-France Maritime MED-Star project to improve the involved public institutions' capacity to jointly prevent and manage fire, also through appropriate adaptation actions. The process of adaptation to climate change entails a number of adjustments of human and natural systems to future climate, in order to minimize the risk and/or maximize benefit. The definition of adaptation objectives and actions is made more complex due to the impact assessment uncertainty. To address this issue, the literature identifies the use of iterative, participatory and inclusive decision-making processes that implies the involvement and cooperation of different actors and sectors.
