2. Analysis of socioeconomic activities that may be affected by the presence of wildlife (agriculture, forestry, etc.);

3. Construction of layers and associated metadata in the GIS for the sample areas of the region;

4. Definition of geographical multicriteria analysis models that can allow the assessment of the economic and environmental sustainability of wildlife management in the sample areas;

5. Analysis of interactions between wildlife and economic activities;
