The project is undertaken by five partners, four from Catalonia (CTFC, UdL, OCCC and CPF) and one from the Italian region of Veneto. The project’s coordinating partner is the CPF, supported by three basic management structures: the Coordination Committee, the Local Participation Group and the Advisory Committee of Experts.

The Coordination Committee is the main management body and is responsible for decision-making throughout the implementation of the project. Its members are:

  • The project director
  • The local coordinator of each partner
  • A technical and financial representative of each entity

The members of the Local Participation Group include representatives of the associations of forest owners from each LU, technicians and managers from the forestry bodies of each area and representatives of the Local Action Groups described in action A4. This group facilitates the dissemination of the project’s results and acts as a forum to achieve consensus on the most suitable methods to be employed to reach the objectives.

The Advisory Committee of Experts collaborates on the development of implementation and monitoring actions in relation to the various ecosystem services and the carbon credit market. It is made up of representatives of various European entities and provides expertise in the field of carbon fixation, biodiversity, water and the use and recovery of the services offered by forests and forest management.
