Memoria Descriptiva de los Trabajos

Development of technical and administrative documentation in English of the project “LIFE-IP RBMP-DUERO, IMPLEMENTATION OF RIVER DUERO BASIN MANAGEMENT PLAN IN THE CENTRAL-SOUTH PART OF RIVER DUERO BASIN", for the call for LIFE Integrated Projects 2014.

The call for the LIFE program in 2014 included a new project method, called INTEGRATED PROJECTS, intended primarily for the administrations for the complete development of plans, strategies and programs. The novelty of these projects lies in the integrative approach pursued by the EU, in such a way that in the development of a specific program, synergies are sought for the parallel application of the requirements of other related sectoral policies.

With this idea in mind, the consortium of partners should be made up of all those administrations that may have competence in the matter, without neglecting all social agents to promote a participatory process. In addition, to ensure the integration of these projects, it is an obligation to mobilize other funds to jointly achieve the set goals.

For this reason, the Duero Hydrographic Confederation decided to present an Integrated Project proposal to fully develop the PHC in the Adaja, Zapardiel and Trabancos river basins as a pilot experience, this project being an instrument to put into practice innovative, sustainable, participatory solutions etc. exportable to the rest of the basin, as advocated by the EU. The beneficiary partners of the project were the Junta de Castilla y León, the Fundación Patrimonio Natural, SOMACYL and the Council of Ávila, all of them coordinated by the Duero Hydrographic Confederation.
