The CILIFO project begins its journey in Doñana

In the wake of promoting synergies between different regional, national and EU policies, one of the main objectives of this project (Interreg V A Spain-Portugal Program –POCTEP- 2014-2020) is to increase territorial resilience to natural risks within the cooperation area, specifically those related to forest fires. The Doñana Biological Station EBD-CSIC is involved, together with other public research organizations, in improving knowledge of the dynamics and management of fire to provide technological solutions and common protocols aimed at facilitating the work of the different organisms involved in fire extinction.

One of the specific actions is the monitoring and follow-up of prescribed burns. In the images, EBD-CSIC researchers together with staff from INFOCA (Junta de Andalucía) @Plan_INFOCA , IRNAS-CSIC @IRNAS_CSIC, INIA @INIA_es and the Doñana National Park carry out a survey and assessment of the plots where controlled burns will be carried out.
