Investing in green infrastructure is the key to better adapt to climate change

Nature is life. However, the modern human seems to be trying to remove it from the map, not realizing that he himself belongs to it. In fact, it is a fundamental piece of the puzzle that forms our planet.

Sometimes called Gaia or Mother Earth by the followers of the new naturalistic beliefs, the reality is that we live in an increasingly battered world. And, as we know, every action has its reaction, sooner or later. But still and everything there is also room for reflection and study, in this case, of green infrastructures.

And that is precisely what the Environmental Hydraulics Institute of the University of Camtabria and the Biodiversity Foundation are doing in three Spanish national parks: Picos de Europa, Guadarrama and Sierra Nevada. In these wonderful places promote a project that studies how the design of green infrastructures and forest restoration favoring adaptation to climate change.

One of the things they are doing is sitting down and talking to the managers of those parks in order to teach them models and design the green infrastructures that are appropriate depending on the terrain and the climatic conditions of it. In addition, they will visit each of these areas together with the managers, directors and technicians to show them models of change in vegetation cover and climate change, something that will be very useful for, for example, restoring riverbanks or slopes, or to promote certain areas of the forest.

Moreover, A series of climate simulations will be carried out to assess the effect of the changes in the climate that will occur around 2050. Thus, it will be possible to know more or less what would happen in the middle of the century if today nothing is done to protect forests, or if, on the contrary, measures are taken so that they can better adapt to climate change.

All in all, they hope that Spain's green areas and its magnificent biodiversity can continue to exist.
