The aim of this paper is the analysis of various regulatory improvement measures introduced in the autonomous region of Galicia over the last decade to help mitigate the depopulation of the rural areas by facilitating the establishment of productive activities in areas at risk of depopulation and thus contributing to increasing and maintaining the population there. It includes the study of the new regime of administrative intervention in economic activities in the rural areas, as well as the emergence, together with the traditional policy of restructuring agricultural property, of another public policy aimed at recovering and enhancing the value of productive land which, at the time, is abandoned or under deficient cultivation.
