Info-BoxIn natural hazard management and disaster risk reduction worldwide, but especially in the Alpine Space, forests are increasingly considered equal to technical or civil engineering measures. Forests can lead to increase slope stability and reduce the risk to an acceptable level in many locations.
Forest covers about 40% of the Alpine Space, thus the preservation and enhancement of the protective role of forests against natural risks are key to an efficient strategy for strengthening the liveability of the Alpine Space.
