The pilot project is situated in the parish of Busto and its surroundings, within the municipality of Lalín in the province of Pontevedra, Galicia. Galicia is divided in 4 provinces, each province in municipalities and each municipality in 'parishes'.
It is a land consolidation area, with agricultural areas (mainly dairy) and forest areas (scrubland and tree land).
Problems related to climate change:
The main problem that affects practically the entire area of Galicia is the risk of forest fires. Due to climate change, the risk of forest fires is expected to increase in summer and in spring time because of the heat and longer dry periods. Forest fires affect both rural and urban areas. The risk is also enhanced due to the presence of a lot of biomass.
