Jun 11, 2020

As part of the program 2014 – 2020 Interreg V-A Italy – Croatia, ATRAC began work on the strategic project CASCADE (Coastal and marine waters integrated monitoring systems for ecosystems protection and management). The duration of the project is 36 months (January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2022), and the total value is € 5,817,547.00. The leading partner of the project is Regione Puglia, and the other nineteen project partners are from the Croatian and Italian coastal regions.

The project aims to restore endangered species and support integrated management with coordinated actions that include monitoring, observation, modeling and management to improve knowledge and assess the vulnerability of terrestrial, coastal and marine environments and ecosystems in Italy and Croatia. The project covers 11 pilot areas, and joint actions will assess and protect coastal and marine biodiversity, establish restoration actions, assess the impact of extreme events on ecosystems and strengthen synergies in these areas.
