A coordinated cross-border response for better environmental protection

A coordinated cross-border response for better environmental protection
Description

The cross-border area of Spain’s Castillo and Leon regions and Portugal’s Centro region have much in common in terms of socio-economic standing and natural resources. However, despite these shared interests, there has been a lack of concrete efforts to coordinate approaches between the regions. The Risk Prevention II project is a force for change by developing links and cooperation on environmental protection and emergency responses to crises.

Results

The project’s objective was broad: to facilitate cooperation between public and private institutions along the cross-border region of Spain’s Castillo and Leon and Portugal’s Centro regions. From rail and road connections to joint civil protection teams, improved communication systems, interrelated mapping and sharing technology and equipment, the project’s many actions shared a single goal: to better preserve and protect the cross-border region’s environment and inhabitants against natural and technological hazards.
