—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.
