PhD topic: Coping with natural hazards in mountain areas under climate change scenarios requires a paradigm shift towards implementing ecosystem-based risk reduction strategies (Eco-DRR). Under this premise, the research will focus on improving knowledge about the protective role of the forest ecosystems against extreme events (i.e. torrential floods, snow avalanches, etc.) in the Pyrenees. The doctoral student will develop his/her research in the context of the INOVA-RISK project (2020-T1/AMB-19913), where an important engagement with local stakeholder will be expected.
