We carry out education and training activities, promoting systematic processes aimed at capacity expansion in terms of territorial governance and the innovative management of natural and cultural assets.
We encourage the strengthening of the territorial business structure and public/private partnerships that help maximize the comparative and competitive advantages offered by biocultural diversity.
