Resumen:
Una universidad española está desarrollando un proyecto INTERREG SUDOE con el fin de ofrecer una respuesta conjunta a la gestión de la biodiversidad en áreas transfronterizas de Francia, Portugal, Andorra y España. Las acciones planificadas para mejorar esta propuesta son las siguientes: 1) identificación de espacios naturales clave que permitan la conectividad en las fronteras de diversos países, 2) análisis del estado de conservación de estos espacios y su evolución con datos procedentes de sensores remotos, trabajo en campo e información disponible de organismos públicos, 3) selección de especies amenazadas y estudio de sus condiciones en Francia, España, Portugal y Andorra y 4) estudio de la conectividad de especies seleccionadas en áreas protegidas en las fronteras de estos países. La universidad busca administraciones públicas y centros de investigación en biodiversidad o recursos naturales. La fecha límite de la convocatoria es el 31 de marzo de 2017 y el plazo para presentar expresiones de interés finaliza el 17 de febrero.

INTERREG SUDOE: searching for public administrations, biodiversity research centres or natural resources.
Summary:
A Spanish University is developing an INTERREG SUDOE project. The proposal aims to provide a joint response to the management of biodiversity in transboundary areas in France, Portugal, Andorra and Spain. To detect key places for joint action in protected spaces analysing with remote sensor data the current state of these areas, studying the connectivity of these protected spaces. It is interested in collaborating with public administrations, biodiversity research centres or natural resources.
Description:
Currently, most of the endangered or vulnerable species are distributed along the main protected areas of France, Spain, Portugal and Andorra. It is right on the borders of these countries, coinciding with the main mountain ranges and river courses, where it find large areas destined for the conservation and protection of these species.

Although the Natura 2000 network provides a common framework for action to manage both protected areas and the species and habitats indexed in its Annexes, it is necessary to offer joint action in France, Spain, Portugal and Andorra for observation, conservation and management of protected areas along their borders.

The following actions are planned for the enhancement of this proposal:
1. Identifying the key natural spaces that allow connectivity along the borders of different countries.
2. Analyzing the state of conservation of these spaces and their evolution with data from remote sensors, field work and information available from public bodies.
3. Selecting threatened species and studying their conditions in France, Spain, Portugal and Andorra.
4. Studying the connectivity of selected species in protected areas along the borders of these countries.

This proposal will be developed within the scope of biodiversity management, management of protected spaces, remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

This project will focus mainly on the identification of Natura 2000 areas in transboundary spaces, analyzing their current state of conservation (species and habitats) by means of remote sensing techniques combined with analysis in GIS. In this first phase it is planned to identify the most important areas of action as well as the key species for which to develop the study of connectivity between these Natura 2000 cross-border spaces. Through the analysis of morphological patterns (MSPA) it will be possible to identify the functions that each part of the territory will fulfill to guarantee the connectivity of these species along these transboundary spaces. The combination of this analysis with graph theory will make it possible to obtain the most important regions to maintain and favour connectivity.
As a result of all the above analysis, it is planned to obtain the regions of the transboundary territory in which it will be more important to undertake measures of management and conservation of the habitats of the species studied.

This proposal will be presented in the Interreg V program, Interreg SUDOE, 2nd call, within priority axis 5, on "Environment and Resource Efficiency". The deadline for submission will expire on March 31, 2017, and it is expected to have the expressions of interest until February 17, 2017.
Given the implications of this proposal, partners from biodiversity research centres or natural resources management, also public administrations, in Spain, Portugal, France and Andorra are sought.
Advantages and Innovations:
This project aims to analyze the network of protected natural spaces in the SUDOE space to detect the key spaces to ensure connectivity management, with special emphasis on flag species, very threatened in each of the countries. The main results of this action will be:

Selection of protected areas of interest for the joint conservation of biodiversity in transboundary spaces SUDOE.
Analysis of the conservation status of the transboundary protected areas SUDOE.
Analysis of the connectivity of transboundary protected areas SUDOE.
Proposed major action areas to ensure the connectivity of threatened species in protected areas transboundary SUDOE.
Plans for the joint management of protected areas.
Actions to protect endangered species.

Partner sought

Partner Sought:
To build this consortium, the lead partner is looking for partners from cross-border regions of Portugal, Spain and France, namely: - Universities and Research Centers: specialized in remote sensing, biodiversity conservation and connectivity. R-Y-D success promotion, sharing best practices. - Regional Administration: interested in promoting cross-country management plans for Natura 2000 spaces. - Public authorities to contribute on knowledge share of regulations and legislations on biodiversity conservation and species protection. - NGOs to contribute on environmental and biodiversity conservation aspects.
