Parc des Baronnies (FRA)

The natural Parc des Baronnies covers 1,506 km2, and has 31,164 inhabitants in 82 communes in the French departments Drome and Hautes Alpes. Major challenges in the natural parc are forest fires and rockfall and related forestry management.

Hazard zones for all natural hazards exist for all communes, but a concept of integrated territorial risk management is missing that would improve risk prioritization processes with a dedicated communication strategy between all actors, stakeholders and protective services.
