In the Mexico study here presented, the analysis was conducted at two different scales: at national scale, in which it allowed the definition of priority areas or fuelwood “hot spots”, and at sub-national scale in the “Purhepecha” Region (one of the priority regions), where it allowed the definition of different pressure zones according to accessibility aspects. In this multi-scale analysis WISDOM expressed its potential as national strategic planning tool as well as operational tool for sub-national planning. The results of the Mexico study - in terms of the identification of priority areas or fuelwood “hot spots”- have been incorporated by the National Forestry Commission, which plans to launch a program of efficient woodburning cookstoves and multi-purpose energy plantations directed to those areas.
