In progress

From the study of the collected information and as a consequence of a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats analysis, 85 specific measures or actions have been defined (identifying at the end of each one of them the organisations implied in the execution of the same).
Because of their relevance, regarding the consecution of the objectives of the Plan, those measures that contribute to these four fundamental axes have to be prioritised:
- Compromise a minimum of the FEADER schedule to forest measures and define them in a useful way for the achievement of the objectives of the Plan for Socioeconomic Activation of the Forest Sector.
- Support the energetic valuation of biomass.
- Support associativism and producer organisations for the mobilisation of forest products.
- Support transformation, differentiation and diversification of use of forest resources.
