The Regional Coordination and Development Commissions (CCDR) of the Algarve and Alentejo present, this Friday, February 2nd, the Action Plan of the Integrated Territorial Instrument (ITI) – Water and Landscape Ecosystems, at 15 pm, in the Auditorium of Crédito Agrícola Terras do Arade, in São Bartolomeu de Messines (Silves).

Resulting from the broad participatory process initiated in May 2023 in both regions, this Action Plan contemplates a set of structuring projects based on investments leading to the sustainability, resilience and competitiveness of resources, communities and border territories of Alentejo and Algarve, particularly vulnerable to climate change and desertification, with an impact on its water availability and biodiversity.

This instrument will mobilize 32,5 million euros in funds from the Algarve2030 regional program and 20,3 million from Alentejo2030, enhancing the development of projects that fall within the following areas: environmental and ecosystem protection; water availability and efficient use of water; green and circular economy; research and innovation; economic and social valorization and revitalization; training and awareness.
