Gijón, Spain (PortSEurope) June 19, 2019 – The Asturias regional government has signed a collaboration agreement with the Foundation Institute of Environmental Hydraulics of Cantabria for the drafting of plans for the Asturian ports to tackle the climate crisis, a project that will entail a cost of €511,000 ($572,400).
The project will allow to comply with the temporary framework established by the Ministry for the Ecological Transition in the context of the Pima Adapta Costa plan, which has allocated to Asturias €151,395 ($169,593).
The document will enable the Principality to work more effectively, both to improve the functionality of port facilities and to strengthen the role of ports as the first line of defense in populated areas.
Under the agreement, the regional administration will provide information on the operations, economic activity and historic damage associated with each port. The Cantabrian Foundation will analyse the risks of the climate crisis in the infrastructures, propose action measures and be responsible for drafting the regional adaptation plan.
