The Local Development Strategy of the Association Leader Ripollès Ges (EDL) for the period 2014-2020, involving a large part of the socio-economic fabric of the territory and GAL partners, is marked as a strategic objective to improve the well-being of people living and working in the rural area of action, and ensure an inclusive, sustainable and intelligent future.
The EDL has the following objectives:
- Work for mitigation and adaptation to climate change and promote circular economy.
- Encourage innovation, business dynamism and entrepreneurship.
- Ensure demographic balance and improve the quality of life and social cohesion.
The Association carries out the accompaniment of public and private promoters to host the annual calls for Leader grants (Operation 19:01:01 PDR) and the coordination and participation in projects of national and transnational cooperation in the strategic area of each territory (Operation 19:03:01 PDR). For the execution of these projects there is an intimate coordination with the different partners of the entity, agents of the territory and, in particular, with the two entities of economic promotion (Ripollès Development Agency and Vall del Ges, Orís and Bisaura Consortium) .
Although it acts on different lines of dynamism, the Association for the Management of the Leader Program Ripollès Ges Bisaura has specialized in the sector of energy saving and efficiency and the application of biomass. This is why it stands out as the Catalan LAG (Local Action Group) with leadership in the energy, environment and forestry sector.
