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 2015.

In 2014, the Hydrographical Confederation of Duero presented an Integrated Project proposal with the objective to fully develop the Hydrological Plan of the Basin 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.

This proposal was not selected among those chosen, therefore, as a result of the new call for the LIFE program corresponding to year 2015, CHD decides to submit its proposal again. This time, they reduce the scope of action to the basins of the Zapardiel, Trabancos and Arevalillo rivers, and to the territory delimited by the Medina del Campo aquifer. 

Regarding the proposal of 2014, the upper part of the Adaja river basin is removed, because it presents fewer pressures and threats, in order to focus the project in areas where aquatic resources are most threatened and prioritizing actions according to the objectives of the Basin Hydrological Plan.

The consortium of partners is made up of the Duero Hydrographic Confederation itself (Coordinating Beneficiary) and the beneficiary partners of the Junta de Castilla y León, the Fundación Patrimonio Natural, SOMACYL and the Council of Ávila.

The general score obtained in all the evaluation criteria significantly improved the results of the proposal submitted for the previous call.
