Governance, management, exploitation and protection of natural agro-forestry resources

Catalonia contains almost 2 million hectares of woodland, of which over half is forest. The CTFC was set up in 1996 to help modernise the forestry sector and make it more competitive, to contribute to rural development and the sustainable management of the natural environment, through research, training and the transfer of technology and knowledge to society.

The centre focuses on meeting the demands of society and resolving problems related to forestry areas and the rural environment. Its work is based on three programmes: the functioning of agro-forestry ecosystems, the governance and socioeconomics of the rural environment, and the multi-functional management of the environment.
