Model Forests is a network of 60 forests around the world. The forests of the Mediterranean are closely tied to the mountains:

The Alps, the Apennines, the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, and so on. This forum is a showcase for good practices in community forest management in countries around the Mediterranean from Spain to Croatia and Italy to Algeria. A chance to know more about systems that can support local communities, promote local agricultural products and stem the tide of depopulation in the highlands.
