The interventions required a significant effort of the beneficiary DRARFD because four provincial districts were involved and therefore the coordination was very complex. The adoption of the practices had different phases: the first one was the preparation of the projects by technicians of DREAM and DSAF, the second one was the transfer in field of the activities provided through the materialization of all interventions with numerous inspections in the field and the direction of the work by of DRARFD and finally the execution of operations by manpower available to the project.
Overall, this action has involved 2 researchers of DSAF, 6 forestry technicians of DREAM, 7 forestry technicians of DRARFD and 299 forestry workers.
An area of 95 ha was affected, this area will have a positive effect on the resilience of 185 ha of Sicilian forest.
