Calpe Council has reported, helped by Europa Innovación, its Sustainable and Integrated Urban Development (DUSI, so called after the Spanish initials) Plan, “Calp Ciudad Sostenible”, last Tuesday the 12th of January. With a 5 years strategic, the global budget of the project will be 8,5M€ of which Europe, through European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), will finance the 50%.
Countless contacts with social and cultural collectives, economic agents and organizations, through challenges and surveys, precede this project presentation. The aim was to gather the citizens’ opinion about what were the priority actions to start up in the Council. All this previous work has been reflected on the Local Action Plan, a document from what the Consistory has intensely worked, together with Europa Innovación, during last months, to set the proposal, obtaining, as a result of it, “Calp Ciudad Sostenible”, an ambitious Project to reach a sustainable, inclusive and modern Council.
The strategy includes different lines of intervention, grouped together in strategic aims, such as improving the access, use and quality of Information and Communication Tecnologies; protecting the environment and efficiency of resources; betting on a low carbon economy and promoting social inclusion and poverty reduction.
