Abstract—The trends of abandonment of mountainous areas for coastal and urban areas and depopulation are considered as additional effects of urbanization and the dominance of tertiary sector activities in Greece. The basic target of this paper is the specification of strategic directions to an integrated development of the mountainous areas through global measures of zoning policies and proposals of specialized productive activities, according to a proper typology that characterises the differentiation of regional problems, needs and perspectives of those areas. In this direction, certain measures of Land Policy for the Integrated Development of mountainous areas, which aim to maximize the potential of these areas in the fields of agriculture, stockbreeding and forestry, are proposed. The study finally sets some strategic directions for integrated development of mountainous areas through a specific spatial planning, protected natural environment and the establishment of new management bodies for mountainous areas.

Index Terms—Transportation system, infrastructure system, integrated developments.
