To this end, a methodology for assessing these factors through multicriteria decision techniques -Analytical Network Process (ANP)- based on the opinions exposed by experts. The results show that factors such as Training and Access to ICT, Aid for rural development, Youth farmers and agricultural dynamism, and Agriculture and CAP aids contribute to territorial resilience.
