Projects goals

The main objective of the INBIOPYR project is to contribute to cross-border harmonisation in the collection of fauna data and the development of indicators that measure the magnitude of change in the spatio-temporal distribution of Pyrenean sentinel species sensitive to climate change. The generation of indicators to assess the impact of climate change on the natural values of the Pyrenees is key to developing appropriate and effective measures to offset or mitigate its negative effects.
At the scale of the massif, important efforts have been made in terms of water resources, snow, forests and flora, but there is still a clear deficit in terms of fauna. Initiatives such as FAUNAPYR made it possible for the first time to have a joint database that brings together the fauna records of the entire massif and allows them to be viewed through a single portal. Now, INBIOPYR intends to go a step further and use the huge amount of information in FAUNAPYR to generate useful indicators to relate spatio-temporal changes in the distribution of the fauna of the Pyrenees to climate change. This contributes to Priority 2 of the Interreg POCTEFA Programme, with the Specific Objective of promoting adaptation to climate change.


In addition, the project also aims to improve wildlife data collection in the Pyrenees through an ambitious set of training initiatives, as well as the development of a transboundary guide to ensure standardised data collection for long-term multi-taxonomic monitoring of species/populations across the transboundary Pyrenean bioregion.
The OPCC will capitalise and transfer the main results of INBIOPYR. It will lead Action 5 which includes the development of IT solutions to capitalise, consult and download climate change indicators in the Pyrenees and organise transboundary transfer seminars. 
The project's panel of partners seeks a balance both territorially and in terms of experience and know-how for the different activities proposed: management of biodiversity databases,
monitoring of species and generation of indicators, training, monitoring of climate change in the Pyrenees, capitalisation of biodiversity data and transfer of key recommendations to the competent authorities.

The INBIOPYR project (EFA020/01) has been co-financed 65% by the European Union through the Interreg VI-A Spain-France-Andorra Programme (POCTEFA 2021-2027). The objective of POCTEFA is to strengthen the economic and social integration of the Spain-France-Andorra border area.
