The EU-funded SCALABLE project 2021-2023 (Social-ecological pathways and gender perspectives for future conservation of biocultural mountain agroecosystems) is coordinated by the University of Almería, Spain. It aims to identify how gender equity can promote pathways for the future conservation of mountain agricultural landscapes in the biocultural regions of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range in southern Spain.
In recent decades, socio-economic developments have induced massive changes in land use and land cover worldwide. These affected large parts of the European Alps, in particular, agricultural unfavourable areas that are climatically and topographically disadvantaged. This study mapped 19 ES within the agricultural area based on land cover in the year 2000 and analysed the changes until 2018.
Recently, UNIMONT has carried out a study on governance in mountain areas which is under publication. The study aims to provide a first overview of the priorities of intervention defined by different case studies for their respective mountain territories.
