Natural Environment Plan

  • Juanjo GalanEmail author


The Natural Environment Plan of the Sierra Calderona Strategic Plan defines the conditions to make compatible nature conservation, public use, fire protection and forest management. It also estimates the labour and monetary impact of the permitted economic activities (biomass production, wood extraction, honey production, etc.) and of the management works. This impact is not very remarkable in terms of money and job creation but it is socially essential in order to recover the relationship between local communities and their natural areas. Finally, the Plan explores the different actors (administrations, collectives, associations, etc.) which could participate in the management of forests. The Natural Environment Plan includes the following pilot projects: (1) Models for the management of forest areas, (2) Timber and biomass harvesting, (3) Network of forest nurseries.
