Ongoing climate change induces extreme phenomena and creates favourable conditions for the development of large fires. The Tuscany Organization has become aware of the fact that an emergency approach cannot be the solution to the fire problem, and has modified its Forestry Law by inserting a new tool—Specific Plans for Forest Fire Prevention—to guarantee effective interventions to safeguard the territory in the regional areas which are most at risk. It is an innovative approach for the Italian reality of these fires, based on models of intervention planning that start from the historical regime of forest fires to characterize the type of events that could occur in the area.
The Tuscany Region has set itself the ambitious challenge of guaranteeing the safety of the territory and ensuring the protection of the environment and the landscape, through targeted interventions which are to be carried out at strategic points to ensure that the forest is more resilient and to keep fires within the operational capacity of the Regional Organization.
The Tuscany Region will present an informative video, about 7 min long, produced in 2022 in English with French subtitles.
