Lakes and PoolsWater Harvesting
Iberia is edging towards desertification, and the increasingly hot summers continue to increase the risk of forest fires. The most valuable interventions are:
- Land management that honours local agricultural traditions
- Reforestation with a diversity of native species, and disinvesting in monocultures of maritime pine and eucalyptus.
- Water management – restoring abandonned wells and springs; constructing lakes, contour ditches, ponds and pools
- Rain water harvesting
- Encouraging land users back to live and work.
