CHG MAIN BENEFICIARY OF ACECA PROJECT PLANTS 30 INDIGENOUS TREES FOR EUROPEAN COOPERATION DAY

Yesterday, the Guadiana River Basin Authority celebrated the European Cooperation Day. The President of the entity, Samuel Moraleda, attended this event.

The event consisted of the planting of 30 trees and bushes of different native species in the vicinity of Badajoz, in the area known as Las Bardocas-Crispitas.

The celebration of this event coincides this year with the anniversary of the 30 years of existence of the Interreg Programme. To commemorate this anniversary, similar events have been planned throughout the Spanish-Portuguese strip, in order to highlight the importance and relevance of the warnings that scientists and researchers have been pointing out about the proven relationship between biodiversity and epidemics. In addition to this event in Badajoz, shared with the towns of Elvas and Campomaior, others have been held in Chaves-Verin, Cerveira-Tomiño and Ayamonte, Vila Real de San Antonio-Castro Marim.

The Interreg Spain-Portugal programme promotes cross-border cooperation projects with the support of the European Union. Its objective is to reduce the existing inequality between the different regions of the European Union. The programme is based on four priority axes such as strengthening research, technological development and innovation; improving the competitiveness of SMEs; supporting the transition to a low carbon economy and, finally, protecting the environment and resource efficiency.
