Jornada abierta sobre aprovechamiento de la biomasa en las comarcas de Sierra de Gata y Las Hurdes
Valverde del Fresno (Cáceres), 2 de diciembre de 2016, 10-14h
The Ministry of Environment of the Junta de Extremadura and the University of Extremadura have recently started the Mosaic project, whose main objective is to design a participatory fire prevention strategy based on forestry, agricultural and livestock activities that gradually recover a diverse, inhabited landscape and with less risk: a landscape in mosaic. In this context, the local use of biomass is presented as an interesting opportunity to generate public-private partnerships that contribute to a better use of forests, fire prevention and employment generation.
The day will count with the speakers mentioned below, who will have 15-minute intervention shifts (10 to expose their lines of work and 5 for questions). Next a round table will be established, open to the public, mainly professionals and local managers.
