The Municipalities of Val Brembana among PADIMA project pilot areas
The Valle Brembana Consortium of Mountain Municipalities is one of the pilot areas of the European project of interregional co-operation under INTERREG IVC, PADIMA: "Sharing common policies and strategies for combating depopulation in mountain areas". The initiative was presented on 17 June during a press conference in Piazza Brembana, at the headquarters of the Valle Brembana Consortium and was attended by local administrators and the President of IREALP, Fabrizio Ferrari.
In this way some Bergamo Municipalities will become protagonists of the INTERREG IVC PADIMA project to fight depopulation of mountain areas: the area of the Valle Brembana Consortium of Mountain Municipalities was chosen by IREALP-Italian partner of the project together with the Province of Torino – to experiment with best practices aimed at encouraging the growth and the maintenance of the population in mountain areas.
The main aim of PADIMA (Policies Against Depopulation in Mountain Areas) is to improve the design and implementation of regional policies against depopulation with the long-term goal to increase the population in mountain areas followed by promoting sustainable development.
The interregional co-operation PADIMA project is co-ordinated by Euromontana and has as lead institution the Spanish Diputation de Teruel, along with UCCIMAC (France), Dalarna Regional Development Council (Sweden), Buskerud County Council and Hedmark County Council (Norway), IREALP and the Province of Turin (Italy).
