Preliminary assessment for the ‘Plan of public use of the region of La Garrotxa’

La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, Alta Garrotxa Consortium

Assessment of public use in the group formed by the region of La Garrotxa, which includes the La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, and the Alta Garrotxa natural interest area. The work integrates an analysis of supply and demand, an assessment of the contribution of tourism to La Garrotxa, and the socio-economic development of this territory. In addition, a joint effort has been made with technicians and managers of the protected areas to obtain the information that was lacking on frequentation and the impacts of public use. A summary document has been prepared that contains the assessment and key aspects that should be considered in the future drafting of the Garrotxa Public Use Plan, foreseen in the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism of the Natural Park.
