Catalonia’s forestry sector: 44 organisations secure grants for bioeconomy projects

The Biodiversity Foundation has chosen and will fund 56 projects, with 18 having participation from Catalan organisations, aimed at advancing the forest bioeconomy and its role in driving the ecological transition. In total, 44 organisations in Catalonia have obtained subsidies from the call.

The majority of the selected projects come from local authorities, public institutions, and non-profit organisations. Among them are the Pau Costa Foundation (PCF) and the Forest Sciences and Technology Centre of Catalonia (CTFC).

Nearly one-third of these projects will be implemented in municipalities or provinces with a population density of approximately 30 inhabitants/km2, and over half of the projects are dedicated to enhancing the development and diversification of forest management and utilisation.
