Description of programme
"Interreg Italy – Croatia"

The programme will support cooperation across the Adriatic Sea with the objective to increase the prosperity and the blue growth potential of the area. Through cross-border partnerships, the programme will enhance the local conditions for innovation in the blue economy sectors within the cooperation area. The programme will also improve the climate change monitoring and support the implementation of adaptation measures. This will increase the safety of the area from natural and man-made disasters by additionally implementing innovative and common spatial information systems. These systems will follow the interaction of all ecosystem components, including human activities that affect the environment. To secure environmental sustainability, the programme will also improve marine and coastal transport services and nodes by investing in port infrastructure and maritime transport thus promoting multimodality. Finally, the programme intends to use the natural and cultural heritage as an engine for sustainable and more balanced territorial development by incorporating rural areas and ensuring a better spatial distribution of visitors' flow.

This programme enables regional and local stakeholders from two countries to exchange knowledge and experiences, to develop and implement pilot actions, to test the feasibility of new policies, products and services and to support investments.
