Abstract This work carries out an analysis which evaluates the effects of investments in fire protection on the regional economy from a macroeconomic point of view. The new feature of the methodology used is that it has integrate the sum of these investments within a general economic circulation model which consists of a Social Accounts Matrix (SAM) for the Navarre region (Comunidad Foral de Navarra), drafted from its Input-Output Tables (IOT). The objective was to thus identify the direct, indirect and induced effects of these investments by applying the theory of Leontief multipliers. The analysis justifies the economic and financial backing of this type of forestry management policy, not only from the environmental angle, the protection of the ecological functions of the forestland, but also from a macroeconomic point of view by highlighting that these investments stimulate the regional economy by obtaining an increase in the regional GDP which exceeds the sum of investments made and which is accompanied by job creation.
