Alvaro Picardo

Advisor to the General Director in Natural Environment

I work for a regional government in north-central Spain, in the department of forestry, working as advisor in developing public policies.

My field of work is forest management.

I have coordinated the Regional Forest Plan (2002-2027)

I work in fire prevention policies, specially dealing with the integration of grazing on forests, in the promotion of bioenergy and the mobilization of all type of forest products, specially non-wood forest products, as natural resin, mushrooms, pinenuts and chestnuts.

I also work for the International Model Forest Network and suggested the creation of the Mediterranean Model Forest Network.
