The objective of this area is the sustainable development of the rural area of the Nansa Valley in Cantabria using its own natural, landscape, economic and cultural resources. For this reason, work is based on six stages of action: definition, choice of territory, territorial and landscape analysis, diagnosis and drafting the action and implementation plan.
One of the actions proposed to promote the creation of business projects located in the Nansa and Peñarrubia Valley is the “NANSAEMPRENDE” Business Initiatives Programme.
