The management plan of the Madriu-Perafita-Claror states:

Article 6 Activities and traditional practices.

6.1. The maintenance, development and restoration activities and traditional practices that have been undertaken in the Madriu-Perafita-Claror and have been a key element in shaping the cultural landscape are promoted.

Unfortunately, agriculture and siderurgy have fallen completely obsolete, but farming is still an important activity in the valley.
