Project summary What is Innocastle? Mostly located in rural and remote areas, historic castles, manors and estates (HCME) have the potential to stimulate rural and regional development and innovation. However, this requires a shift of paradigm in governance and support. By developing new policy instruments to unlock these assets, HCME could act as drivers for job creation, better education, improving life quality and reducing social inequalities. The partnership of Innocastle consists of four European regions, each addressing one policy instrument: The National Institute of Heritage in Romania, the Province of Gelderland in the Netherlands, University College Ghent in Belgium and the Provincial Government of Badajoz in Spain.  National Trust from the UK will act as knowledge partner throughout the process and support all partners in remodeling their policies.  What does that mean in practice? In phase 1, the partners first compared the situations between each region and learned from each other. Afterwards, four partners developed local action plans to improve targeted policy instruments in each region. The main deliverables of the process are: 1. A joint baseline survey on existing policies and practices. Consult it here.  2. Study visits to each of the partner organisations, including a themed seminar and opportunity for peer review. Read about the visits so far in Romania, Wales, Gelderland, Badajoz and Flanders.  3. Fifteen transferable and inspiring good practices have been identified, which could serve other policymakers across Europe - read the Innocastle good practices here.  4. The development of regional action plans together with local actors to improve particular policy instruments, using the data collected. The Local Action Plans are currently in the process of being validated and they will be uploaded soon for consultation.  Anticipated results INNOCASTLE seeks to demonstrate the importance of partnership in the sustainable revitalisation and future-proofing of heritage sites. It will alert policymakers to the need for effective funding to enable heritage sites to become self-sufficient.  INNOCASTLE will also highlight our shared European identity. The project will use interregional cooperation to develop new policies for heritage across four partner regions (Gelderland, Extremadura, Flanders and Romania).  Each has a different emphasis, but each will work towards improving the long-term sustainable development of HCME through 4 specific objectives: GOVERNANCE AND PARTNERSHIPS - Innocastle increases collaboration between all levels of governance (local, regional, national, European), between expert fields (heritage, tourism, leisure, landscape, nature) and between sectors (public, private, research and society) in order to help HCME to flourish.FINANCE AND INVESTMENTS - Innocastle generates know how on meaningful, integrated and durable transformation of HCME and sustainable business models. Available resources need to be used more efficiently.PROMOTION AND VISIBILITY - Innocastle develops know-how for local and regional actors to better promote and facilitate HCME through storytelling, cultural routes and product development.DISSEMINATION AND CONTINUATION - Innocastle opens a European-wide discussion about the current and future role of HCME in our society, as an important testimony of our shared European identity. €1,107,435.00 from 1 Jun 2018 to 30 Nov 2022 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Regional Operational Program 2014-­2020 / Investment Priority 5.1 ­ Preservation, protection, promotion and development of the cultural heritage and identity. The Regional Operational Program (ROP) 2014-2020 in Romania will be tackled by the National Institute of Heritage.Specifically, investment priority 5.1 of the ROP refers to the “preservation, protection, promotion and development of the cultural heritage and identity”, with the objectives to stimulate the local economy by improving the overall condition of heritage sites in Romania. As such, this priority can finance the restoration and touristic promotion of built heritage.The practice has shown that the ROP guides could be improved in order to better correlate with other related domains and current issues found in the field. Specifically: More detailed inquiries by central and regional authorities are needed to better reflect the realities in the field.Systems to collect and monitor data of public interest regarding heritage need to be put together to offer a complete overview.It is essential that regional programs reflect the complexity of architectural heritage that can only be properly conserved when brought in relation with its context, which often includes natural, movable and immaterial heritage.Like all other policy instruments that are part of Innocastle, also Priority 5.1 needs to be more correlated to other regional development strategies which include or affect cultural heritage, reflect stakeholders’ needs and to develop comprehensive evaluation criteria for the economic impact on local communities. Which partners are working on this? National Institute for Heritage Onroerend Erfgoeddecreet (Decree on Immovable Heritage) The Decree on Immovable Heritage is an overall decree on monuments and landscapes elaborated by the Flemish Government. The Decree addresses the working instruments to protect and to manage immovable heritage in Flanders, such as: Scientific inventories of important heritage can be set legally;Four protection statutes support the heritage values of sites: instruments to manage heritage, permits to change immaterial heritage, premiums to conserve immaterial heritage and subsidies for an additional structural support. The Belgian partner in Innocastle, University College Ghent will further investigate the degree from the perspective of historic castles, manors and estates to find improvement points within Innocastle. Several ideas are already identified:  Historic castles, manors and estates which are listed on the inventory of architectural heritage get specific restrictions which can limit their possibilities for developmentThe complexity and exhaustiveness of the regulations discourage owners to take initiatives to preserve, transform or exploit their monuments.The current subsidies are inadequate for a sustainable preservation.Heritage legislation often coincides with other (sectoral) legislations regarding nature, spatial planning, tourism and others.Heritage policy mainly focuses on identification, assessment and conservation. There is nearly no attention or expertise for the dynamics of the transformation of castles, manors and estates.The heritage policy in practice solely aims at listed or protected heritage. Non-listed heritage sites do not get the opportunity to work on development instruments such as management plans within this decree. Which partners are working on this? University College Ghent Programa Operativo de Extremadura, Operational Programme for Extremadura objective 6.3.1 The Extremadura Operational Programme has allocated EUR 2 billion euro of funding with the aim to stimulate economic growth and strengthen the civil society in the Extremadura region. One of the investment objectives addressed (6.3.1) is to boost protection, promotion and development of cultural heritage. The main objective of this instrument is the valorization of cultural and natural heritage resources of the region. The creation of cultural heritage itineraries focused on castles and fortifications that are located mainly in rural areas with a great natural value (including their physical or virtual recreation) is a priority for the promotion of sustainable tourism in the region and the improvement of the economic development of isolated rural areas. The operational programme has several issues at implementation level due to different factors. The political situation at a national and regional level, delays in information and approval of budgets, the limitation of resources, the necessity of new solutions for adequate exploitation of castles and fortifications (both public and private). INNOCASTLE will address a clear necessity in the region of Extremadura, the correct valorization and sustainable exploitation of the local cultural heritage. Which partners are working on this? Provincial Government of Badajoz Beleidsprogramma Cultuur en Erfgoed (Policy Program Culture and Heritage) The main objective of the Policy Programme “Culture and Heritage” is to enhance the conservation of protected heritage in the province of Gelderland in combination with suitable use and a better experience of the heritage involved. The main goals of this policy programme are: The positioning of heritage as a structural part of spatial plans based on actual informationWell-organised heritage sector in the provinceGood condition of listed monuments, both buildings and gardens, parks, archeological monuments etc.Innovation of the heritage practice, notably on economic significance, sustainability, skills and financing. Owners of castles manors and estates in the Province of Gelderland, especially private ones, come forward with questions on economic viability, sustainability and financing the necessary measures. At the same time, municipalities in the region are increasingly seeking the support of the province on applying the legislation and other rules on this important body of heritage. The Province ofGelderland aims to investigate possible changes in the policy so that the needs of owners and municipalities could be met.  Which partners are working on this?

Project summary The waterway regions involved in SWARE all share unique natural and cultural heritage: protected areas with rich biodiversity and a bunch of enticing historic cities and buildings connected to water. These amenities make them more and more attractive for leisure activities resulting in an ever growing number of visitors (30-50% increase in the past 10 years) which causes tensions with heritage conservation aspects. All SWARE partners recognize that the socio-economic future of their regions is fundamentally depending on finding the synergies between preserving the cultural and natural values for the next generations and at the same time "opening their gates" with a controlled visitor management. By demonstrating the economic value that a „green” leisure industry can bring to a region, it can build strong public and political support both for heritage protection and sustainable valorisation thereof. What SWARE strives for is achieving a better balance between protection and sustainable exploitation of the valuable natural and cultural resources through improving the development programmes and policies of the partner regions, based on the transfer of good practices of other participating regions. Partners share the common bottleneck of fragmented governance structures without proper cooperation forms, therefore SWARE will stimulate the establishment of new participatory governance schemes having a much better potential to implement efficient policies contributing to the sustainable regional development. As an overall result, decision-makers, public and private players, as well as inhabitants will gain a better knowledge and commitment towards protecting and sustainably “using” their environmental and cultural assets. €1,365,338.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 31 Mar 2021 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Program Space of the Province of South Holland The Program Space of the Province of South Holland is a policy instrument under the umbrella program called Vision Spatiality and Mobility, together with the Mobility Program and the Space Regulation of the Province. The Vision is a strategic policy document on spatial planning and mobility, while the Program Space, determined by the Provincial Council, translates that into operational policies and indicates which mix of instruments the province of South Holland intends to deploy to achieve these goals. Chapter 3 (Spatial quality), section 3.5. and 3.6. of the Program define the objectives and measures regarding heritage and nature. The protection and enhancement of cultural heritage and related natural, green spaces and ensuring their contribution to the amenity value and quality is a priority. Being the most water-rich province of NL, the waterways’ maintenance and management, a well-functioning network of recreational waterways coupled with cultural heritage is also defined as of great importance for South-Holland. However, the related governance structures are quite fragmented, especially with regard to the various types of inland waterways, and the responsibilities of the specific partie(s) (the province, the water board & the municipality) for specific actions has not been clearly separated. Furthermore, the attention in the Program is mainly on the cultural heritage and natural value of bigger waterways while in this area there are a lot of smaller waterways as well. Which partners are working on this? Association Regio Water Province of Zuid-Holland DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR COUNTY TIPPERARY The Development Plan details the overall strategy for proper planning and sustainable development of Tipperary County (South & North). The objectives of the Plan are the key determinant for the appropriate location and form of different types of developments. South Tipperary County Development Plan’s Chapter 6 and North Tipperary County Development Plan’s Ch.8 provide policy guidance to ensure the protection, conservation and enhancement of natural & built environments, general amenities and heritage assets. The reason why seemingly two Plans are referred to above is that in 2014 as part of a wide-ranging reform of local government structures in Ireland, North- and South Tipperary County Council were amalgamated to form Tipperary County Council. The planning policies and spatial development frameworks of the two Plans remain legally in force and are collectively known as the County Development Plan of County Tipperary. This position will remain until a revised all-county Plan is prepared in 2016/2017. The current Plan needs improving to ensure that it addresses the challenges of increasing popularity of the area for leisure purposes through leveraging off the heritage assets, whilst at the same time conserving and preserving these assets. In order to do this, the performance of the instrument is to be enhanced regarding public awareness & integrated governance, including public-private cooperation aspects that are currently not visible enough on the County’s heritage agenda. Which partners are working on this? TIPPERARY COUNTY COUNCIL ROP Lombardia ERDF 2014-2020 The ROP, as the Regional Operational Programme for the Lombardy Region includes various priority areas and concrete measures to support the achievement of key national development priorities along with the EU2020 objectives. Action III.3b.2.1 of the OP aims at supporting the development of complementary products and services to the enhancement of cultural and natural values of the territory through cross-sectoral cooperation and an integrated approach. Similarly to other entities in Italy, in the framework of a public reorganisation process, the Metropolitan City of Milan (MCM) is passing a temporary step of transition from the former Province of Milan to a new, more complex institution, with an extended level of responsibility and geographical coverage. As a result of this, a systematic (re)consideration of governance approaches and procedures is needed, also with regard to the implementation of projects supported by the OP. This will ensure that actions financed by the policy instrument, targeting the unique heritage assets of the region are taken with the involvement of all relevant actors and on the appropriate level of intervention. Which partners are working on this? Metropolitan City of Milan Cooperation Programme Interreg V-A Slovakia-Hungary 2014-2020 The overall objective of the Cooperation Programme is to contribute to the EU2020 strategy and to foster economic, social and territorial cohesion. Specifically, the CBC Programme focuses on Nature and Culture in its Priority Axis I., 1.1: Conserving, protecting, promoting and developing natural and cultural heritage. The HU-SK border divides many organically cohesive heritage assets, the utilisation and protection of which is only possible in a harmonised manner (e.g. Komárom-Komárno fortification system). Based on that, the re-integration of the region’s natural and cultural environment has already started through earlier CBC Programmes. Nevertheless, further integration is fundamental in fostering sustainable development. The related actions are still very rare and there is a general agreement among the stakeholders that integrated, cross-border management systems of natural and cultural heritage assets would result in a much more efficient and sustainable system capable of fostering cross-border cooperation. Furthermore, it is also considered that the potential of the regions’ cultural and natural heritage is still not sufficiently harnessed for contributing to socio-economic development. Which partners are working on this? Pons Danubii European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation National Operational programme "Growth and employment" The OP aims at achieving key national development priorities of Latvia, along with the EU2020 objectives. Priority axis 5, measure 5.5.1. of the OP aims “to preserve, protect and develop the important cultural and natural heritage, as well as the development of related services". Sustainable management of the natural environment and cultural heritage can foster regional development in case the regional actors define coordinated, place-based strategies balancing measures of preservation with sustainable exploitation. Still, in Vidzeme, integrated strategy development is to be improved. The coordination of the municipalities gathered by VPR is well organized and has deep traditions, but the collaboration and the communication channels with and among other stakeholders (i.e. private companies, civil organisations) are fragmented, leading to a lack of systematic approach towards the rich heritage assets in Vidzeme, just like in other similar regions in Latvia. However, this challenge is not properly reflected in the OP. Therefore, VPR wishes to influence the OP in a way that it puts more emphasis on bottom-up multi stakeholder engagement with regard to projects to be financed under measure 5.5.1. Furthermore, the good practices of other SWARE partners linked to public-private partnership cooperation structures are to bring specific added value while developing cultural and natural heritage related services in the region (as explicitly envisaged in the measure targeted).

Project summary When advertising door-to-door accessibility between origin (usually urban areas) and destination (often remote areas), the tourists often facing missing links on the last stretch of the journey, i.e. from the hubs/regional railway station to the final destination. Public transport is a challenging task in many hinterlands due to different factors that make the operation of regular lines difficult. Beyond that, locations with tourist frequentation are facing a variation in demand depending on seasons. Experiences have shown that a demand-responsive transport system (sharing/pooling/public), embedded in the trunk net of regular public transport, is a thankful enhancement in many cases: to cover the "last mile" in the travel chain of tourists and to provide for the inhabitants an alternative to car use for their daily ways. While various operational models of intermediate services have been created and tested in several foregoing projects, operators are still confronted with institutional barriers and/or the sustained financing in the long run. Capitalizing on foregoing research and development work, regions create new and tailor-made solutions on the basis of the experiences. Integrated solutions tailored to multiple user with target-group oriented information tools, interlacing with main public transport lines and hubs and introducing low-emission and energy-efficient vehicles, shall lead to sustainable and financeable regional mobility systems. Through the interregional exchange, a synthesis and recommendations concerning the implementation of sustainable demand-responsive transport systems had been developed. Policy recommendations and thereby catapulted policy dialogue processes shall facilitate the realization of low-threshold mobility services in the long run. The main results of the project can be found in the brochure. Benefits lie in the positive environmental effect (both in destinations and origins=urban areas), in the improved accessibility for residents and in the regional economy (tourism as an important factor in rural areas), which are shown by the good practices visited. €1,524,942.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 30 Sep 2020 Topic Low-carbon economy Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? ERDF-OP "Investment for Growth and Jobs Austria 2014-2020", Investment priority 9d - CLLD Tyrol Austria has only one general structural funds programme ("Investments in Growth and Employment Austria 2014-2020 - Operational Programme for the use of the ERDF funds") – agreed between federal state and the provinces. The Managing Authority ist located at federal level, whereas each province acts as an intermediary (funding) body. The ERDF OP (Investment priority 9d for the province of Tyrol) is meant to give communities the ability to develop their region. Within this instrument, regions have the possibility to use structural funds for regional development. The basis for the developement is a strategy wich defines certain priorities, two of these priorities (ERDF) aim at migitating climate change (and to adapting to it), and at cooperation between cities and their surrounding. In this context, the development of mobility solutions is an integrative building block for overall regional development and therefore it is necessary to pursue mobility projects within the CLLD (community-led local development) approach. Which partners are working on this? Regional Management East Tyrol Integrated Regional Operational Programme Main objective of IROP is to contribute to the promotion of quality of life, to ensure sustainable provision of public services across the country, to improve public transport infrastructure. This will be beneficial for a balanced and sustainable regional development, as well as economic, territorial and social cohesion of Slovak regions, cities and municipalities. The IROP will be influenced by proposing such activities within the action plan that will be in line with IROP and could be financed by it. Which partners are working on this? Agency for the Support of Regional Development Kosice Regional Plan for Development of Northeastern Region 2014-2020 (NUTS 2 region) The ERDF OP "Regions in Growth" 2014-2020 (OPRG) through which the Regional Plans are implemented, is aiming at promotion of growth and jobs by improving business environment and connectivity and enhancing local potential. Measures for development of regional tourism improving transport infrastructure and urban environment are foreseen, but provisions for the "Last Mile" issue are missing.   Special attention is paid to specific objective 2: “Improving the transport connectivity at national level by the development of the road infrastructure with regional importance”, and specific objective 3: “Developing the relations “city-region” and improving the access to cultural and historical values, the logistics centres, the places of recreation and tourism, the industrial and business zones in the regions”.   In the OP, measures for sustainable mobility, especially on the "last mile" are principally eligible according to the programme`s investment priorities, but no projects in this veine have yet been proposed nor implemented. "Last mile" has not particularly been considered in before implemented and funded projects during the period 2007-2013. This is the reason to propose this project in order to allow regional and local authority to be able to elaborate relevant action plans for sustainable mobility and ask for funding for their implementation. Which partners are working on this? Club "Sustainable Development of Civil Society" Cataluna ERDF 2014-2020 OP. Specific Objective OE.4.5.1 One of the priorities stablished within Cataluna ERDF 2014-2020 OP is priority 4 "Promote the low-carbon emissions economy to all sectors". Moreover, it is also stablished the specific goal 4.5.1 "Promote Sustainable Urban Mobility: clean urban transport, public transport, urban-suburban-rural connections, road network improvement, cycling, walking, electromobility and development of clean energies". In this sense, the LAST MILE objectives and goals suit very well with the specific goal 4.5.1, as the development of flexible transport systems in tourist regions with low residential population density and the broad stakeholder work will help to integrate the "last mile" in relevant transport and tourism strategies/regional development instruments as well as in the regional funding priorities in the long term. The LAST MILE aim is to enable multimodal travel chains based on main public transport lines for tourists to access holiday destinations and for residents to improve their accessibility in public transport within their places of residence and of the centers/cities where they find workplaces and different upper-level services. Therefore, the specific 4.5.1 goal of ‘Promote Sustainable Urban Mobility’ is completely covered. Within the LAST MILE project, the regional government of Cataluna wants to propose well prepared mobility measures with a focus on the last link of the travel chains ("last mile") to be supported by structural funds in the frame of this programme. Which partners are working on this? Mobility and Transport Direction. Ministry of Territory and Sustainability. Government of Catalonia Global Strategy for sustainable mobility for residents and cross-border commuters (MoDu, April 2012) The MoDu strategy describes 4 political objectives: 1. Improve links between territorial development and mobility: Principle of "city of short distances", better mix of the functions housing, work and leisure, compact urban development, reduction of (individual) motorized traffic at its source 2. 25% of daily trips by soft mobility: Reduce motorized transport by increasing the share of soft mobility in the daily paths and especially in short distances (at least 25% of daily trips by soft mobility by 2020) 3. 25% of motorized trips by public transport: Offer attractive transport prompting users to perform many of their motorized trips by pt (at least 25% of daily motorized trips by pt) 4. Promote alternative use of the car: parking management, P&R, carpooling or carsharing - in combination with an attractive public transport offer;   The main focus of the MoDu strategy lies on the daily traffic (residents, commuters). To gain a more integrative viewpoint, LAST MILE will provide a profound analysis of the regional situation and analyse the real needs, in particular the specific tourists’ needs. These reflexions will be complementary to the national reflexions. The action plan will propose possible innovative and sustainable solutions which could be integrated in the national scheme in order to better fulfil the aims 2+3. Actions shall also help to sensitise the public (residents and tourists) about the mobility issue and encourage them to make a more sustainable choice. Which partners are working on this? Nature Park Upper Sûre Spatial Management Plan of Westpomeranian Voivodeship Spatial Management Plan of Westpomeranian Voivodeship is a regional spatial policy instrument managed by Regional Office for Spatial Planning on behalf of the Regional Board; 3 major purposes: • provide information about the region, i.p. its spatial conditions and directions for development, • determine the spatial policy of the region, in line with the nat. and reg.development strategies, • coordinate elements of spatial development resulting from international obligations. It defines goals for management of space in the region and development rules, and determines long-term directions for spatial policy. It is a basis for elaborating regional OPs and conclusions pertaining to the regional spatial policy. Local governments need to take into consideration provisions of the Plan in their planning practice. For West Pomerania it is crucial to strengthen the potential of tourism as main sector of regional economy. On the other hand, demographic changes in the region force the regional selfgoverment to meet different requirements of older people and young families, who are two strong groups of residents. Their exclusion from social life thought inefficient transportation system and lack of accessibility to important and vivid parts of the region is the main challenge of regional developement. It requires multi-sectoral analysis and measurable components to be able to invest financial tools in the region (e.g. Regional ERDF OP) in multifarious smart way. Which partners are working on this?

Project summary Europe’s maritime & fluvial regions exist in great diversity, yet show parallels in spatial & political challenges. The Cultural heritage of these regions form an essential part of coastal landscape. This heritage is considered particular vulnerable exposed to spatial changes in transport, industrialisation of fisheries and use of coastal zones for tourism.  Regional policy instruments will be improved through new projects, improved governance and structural change. Seven MEUR in Structural Funds are estimated to be influenced by the project, as well as 1.030 MEUR of other funds. The number of visitors to cultural heritage sites is expected to increase and public access to these sites expected to improve. The partnership covers 8 partners from 6 countries (NO,RO,ES,IT,NL,IE). A 3-step interregional learning process will be applied:       1) Identification and analysis of heritage & territorial situations;       2) exchange of experience and good practice within heritage management;      3) development of regional action plans through participatory involvement of stakeholders. A methodological framework and a toolbox for assessing & developing heritage will serve as backbone to the learning process. This video shows the rich tangible and intangible Heritage of           €1,728,536.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 30 Sep 2020 Topic Environment and resource efficiency What will this project change?       RESULTS     Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Strategy for cultural heritage sector in Vest-Agder The strategy for cultural heritage sector in Vest-Agder was adpoted by Vest-Agder County Council in 2014. The strategy describes eight thematic priorities. One is the historical outports on the archipelago of Agder. The strategy recognises the unique heritage value of these small townscapes as defining elements in the coastal landscape. As this ensemble of coastal heritage is spread over two neigbouring counties and fourteen municipalities, the legal responsibility for protection of this heritage is divided between mulitiple public authorities, both local, regional and national. As a consequence, the differences in how the individual outports are managed is considerable. These stem from different management traditions, professional and financial resources and differences in type and content of the development plans put into use by the municipalities. This diversity in public management is a key challenge for the protection of these heritage assets as part of the larger cultural landscape when faced with an intense demand for redevelopment of the landscape for recreational purposes. Any improvement of the heritage management must be developed in close cooperation with all relevant stakeholders, both public and non-public, in order to be efficient, durable and sustainable in the longer perspective. Which partners are working on this? Agder County Council (until 31/12/19 Vest-Agder County Council) Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020 In the RoP 2014-2020, Sud-Est Region of Romania, cultural heritage is framed within the Priority axis 5 - Improving the urban environment and conservation, protection and sustainable use of cultural heritage, Investment Priority -5.1 Preserving, protecting, promoting and developing natural and cultural heritage and the Specific Objective - Boosting local development through conservation, preservation and promotion of cultural heritage and cultural identity. The objective of the priority is that the protection of movable and immovable cultural heritage of the region can bring value added to the distinct positioning of the area as a travel destination. The implementation of this priority depends partly on the development of new projects by regional partners, e.g. the counties of the region. However, the focus on economic exploitation of the heritage can have a potentially negative impact on the quality of these assets as their sustainability at the same time remains insufficiently analysed by the policy instrument. This situation makes it difficult for the counties to develop sustainable projects. This is further accentuated by low financial and professional resources for heritage management available for the county. Hence, the management of Priority axis 5 will be greatly improved by increasing professional capacity and developing knowledge on heritage management in the region. Of special importance for Tulcea CC is the coastal heritage connected to the Danube Delta. Which partners are working on this? Tulcea County Council European Regional Development Fund Operational Programme 2014-2020 for Castile and Leon (ERDF OP 2014-2020), Thematic Objective 6. To promote the cultural heritage. O.E 6.3.1 To promote and encourage the protection and cultural heritage development. Strategic Plan for Cultural Heritage in Castile In the ERDF OP for Castile and Leon, cultural heritage is framed within the thematic objective 6 To promote the cultural heritage, Specific Objective 6.3.1. (OE.6.3.1.) to promote and encourage the protection and cultural heritage development. The objective is to promote the integrity of Cultural Heritage by proper maintenance and management and to encourage the promotion of research, recovery and enrichment of the cultural heritage of Castile and Leon, in terms of sustainability promoting the participation of all stakeholders. To address this scope, the Regional Government has included in the ERDF OP 2014-2020, the PAHIS Plan 2020 drafted and implemented by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism that is a comprehensive plan for integrated management of Cultural Heritage. It pivots around five strategic axes. Within Axis 3, the Plan considers that the integrated management of cultural heritage is the result of the interaction of social groups and their relationship with the land, people, quality, quantity and uniqueness of cultural assets. It aims to promote actions that affect the conditions for sustainable territorial development over time. The strategy needs to be supplemented by a participatory and integrated sustainable management to improve its efficiency in areas such as innovation, knowledge economy and protection of natural and cultural coastal heritage. Which partners are working on this? Castilla y León Regional Government - Regional Ministry of Culture and Tourism Regional Operational Programmme ERDF-ESF of Molise 2014-2020. The ROP is still to be adopted. Molise region promotes the conservation of cultural heritage within its territory through the new Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020, financed by ERDF. The objective 5.2.1 and 5.1.1. of axis 5 5 "environment, tourism and culture", 6c priority, is to improve the preservation and promotion of cultural and natural heritage in areas of strategic relevance by enhancing systemic and integrated resources and territorial jurisdictions. The policy instrument intends to promote a process of development for the protection and enhancement of natural and cultural areas of attraction. This measure should be developed to balance the potential negative impact on the coastal landscape from the other priorities of the policy instrument, such as the further development of leisure economy and industrialisation of fisheries and aquaculture - priorities set out to tackle the economic crisis and the depopulation of the area. The policy instrument must be improved because it does not have a comprehensive understanding of heritage as a landscape unit that consists of artificial and non-renewable natural resources, traditions and lifestyle. Moreover, the policy instrument must move from a traditional focus on state-based preservation and protection of sites and monuments to a new governance model of cultural landscapes based on participatory action. Finally, the policy instrument lacks adequate measures concerning coastal heritage protection and management that will be enhanced by the project. Which partners are working on this? Molise Region European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Operational Programme of the Basque Country Priority axis 3, and the related investment priority 3.3 of this policy instrument regulated by the Basque Government aims to develop measures for supporting the creation and enhancement of SME capacities to create new products and services needed to reduce the unemployment rate that has recently increased sharply. However it is at the same time acknowledged that there firstly is a need for better coordination between actors due to a confusing governance system, and secondly that the overall development should be implemented in a sustainable manner. In relation to economic development, it as acknowledged that the tourism industry offers a great opportunity with a potential for increased exploitation of the coastal landscape and the cultural heritage embedded in it. The combination of increased exploitation of the heritage within a confusing governance system potentially poses a threat to the integrity of the coastal heritage and landscape, which is not sufficiently analysed by the policy instrument today. Without improving the understanding of the interconnection between heritage and landscape, there is a risk that economic development activities could have an irreversible negative impact on coastal heritage in the region. Hence, the policy instrument should be improved by integrating a better understanding of the issue of coastal heritage into the different measures of the operational programme.  Which partners are working on this? Leartibai Development Agency County Donegal Development Plan 2012-2018 The County Donegal Development Plan 2012-2018 is the main policy instrument used to manage change in land-use including the coastal region in the County, relating to the management and regeneration of our settlements through the protection and celebration of our heritage. Chapter 8.2 of the County Donegal Development Plan 2012-2018 (CDDP), Marine Resource and Coastal Zone Management aims to support marine resource development, which contributes to the socio-economic and sustainable development of the County. Furthermore, Chapter 6 of the aforementioned Plan, The Natural and Built Heritage, looks to conserve, protect and enhance the County’s built, natural and cultural heritage for future generations and encourage appreciation, access and enjoyment of these resources. Looking to these two sections of the Plan there is a very clear policy void relating to the unique and significant cultural, built and environmental heritage along the coastal region with a need to inform an integrated, evidence based and heritage led management approach, which this project aims to address.

Project summary The project focuses on river deltas in Europe and their potential to develop innovative activities aiming at utilization of local natural and cultural heritage.  The aim is to improve the regional policy instruments that foster the capabilities of using ecosystem services in river deltas to strengthen regional economy. The delta regions are rich in biodiversity but poor financially. The challenge is how to foster the natural and cultural capabilities available from the past and to develop new experiences based on ecoservices in river deltas to boost regional economy. 6 delta regions particiapate: Rijn delta (NL), Danube delta (RO), Camargue delta (FR), Albufera delta (ES), Po delta (IT) and River Blackwater delta (IE). 9 partners from 6 countries represent a mix of regional and local public authorities as well as education and research institutes. PROGRESS SO FAR After five semesters of working together, partners found high opportunities in the cross-regional learning and cooperation in fostering the capabilities of using local natural and cultural qualities of delta regions. Partners have engaged well with each other and each partner is developing a better understanding of the capacity and expertise of other partners. The policy learning process started since the 1st Interregional Learning Event in France. Partners shared some experiences on a few joint themes such as nitrification of water, design based on local resources, payments for ecosystem services, and tools for development of regional capabilities. An overarching strategy is to put ecosystem services on the agenda of the EU Regional Development with illustrative operational instruments for deltas. The 2nd Interregional Learning Event in Spain was dedicated to learning the best practices and focusing on innovative ecosystem services in deltas. Stakeholder involvement is ensured through the RSG meetings where local actors have opportunities to describe their challenges and expectations which is the added value of the project. The 3rd Interregional Learning Event in Italy was dedicated to the exchange of experiences on the use of Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) schemes in the participating delta regions. The 4th Interregional Learning Event and Partner Meeting was held online, as Covid-19 outbreak prevented the planned meeting in Cork, Ireland. The meeting was dedicated to the development of action plans for delta regions. The two-day online meeting was successfully concluded with identifying further steps and activities for continuation of the project. The 5th Interregional Learning Event to be held in Tulcea, Romania, was instead organized online as well, due to Covid-19 situation.  The focus of the meeting was on action plans and sustainable business models.  €1,807,904.00 from 1 Jun 2018 to 31 May 2023 Topic Environment and resource efficiency What will this project change? The project will encourage all relevant stakeholders to get actively involved in the process which will result in the improved implementation of the regional policy instruments leading to better use of deltas' ecosystem services for regional economy. This will be done through policy improvements, improvement of governance, learning sessions, development of action plans, identification of good practices and sharing and active work in chosen deltas with involvement of regional stakeholder groups. Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Noordelijke Innovatie Agenda 2014-2020 (OP Noord) Northern Innovation Agenda concerns a joint course towards economic growth, employment and well-being in the Northern Netherlands, addressing current social challenges around water, renewable sources, food, health as starting point and building on the existing qualities and knowledge for realization of innovative solutions for regional economic development. The agenda is developed along three lines of investment. One of the investment lines is renewing ecosystems which entail an environment where new ecosystem products and services are developed in a good interaction with a society. The reason for improving this policy instrument is that Innovation Agenda does not have a specific focus on the ecosystem services of deltas and their potential is not used for implementing this strategy. Therefore, we want to introduce new, innovative aspect in the policy instrument that would foster diverse economic development for the addressed region. Which partners are working on this? Province of Fryslân Charter of Commitment of the Regional Natural Park of Camargue (RNPC) The charter, established for 2011-2026, has 4 major ambitions: 1. To manage the delta complex by integrating the impacts of the climate change; 2. To guide the evolution of the activities to the benefit of an exceptional biodiversity; 3. To strengthen the territorial solidarity, social cohesion and improve the living environment; 4. To share the knowledge and open the delta to the Mediterranean cooperation. For this purpose, the Park must be a tool to renew its actions, initiate new partnerships to take up the challenges facing the territory. The reason for improving this instrument is that there is currently no commitment regarding the use of ecosystem services in deltas. These improvements are necessary for the territory, also classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO (RNPC being co-manager), in order to better meet the objectives of its program. Which partners are working on this? The Regional Natural Park of Camargue Regional Operational Programme (ROP) ROP aims at promoting smart sustainable and inclusive growth to make regions more attractive. It addresses major development challenges for Romania: regional competitiveness, sustainable urban development, low-carbon economy and economic and social infrastructure at regional and local levels. Actions aim at addressing TO 6 'Environment and resource efficiency' through the axis/ measures of separate financial allocation for Danube Delta (DD), through the Integrated Territorial Investments Instrument in accordance with the DD Integrated Development Strategy (DDIDS). In a regional context with multiple protection statuses (UNESCO Ramsar and Natura 2000), innovative approaches for sustainable economic development through valorization and efficient management of natural and cultural resources are needed. Although ROP provides funding for improving urban environment and preserving and valorizing cultural heritage, there is no specific reference to the use of ecosystem services for achieving the programme’s objectives and the ways to promote different uses of ecosystem services that could contribute to regional economy. The actions of ROP focused on DD have potential for improvement taking into account specific aspects of delta ecosystems and needs of local communities, with the help of lessons learnt through exchange of experiences with similar areas in Europe.

Danube Delta National Institute for Research and Development Po Delta Park Territorial Plan Po Delta Park Territorial Plan is dedicated to the development of Po Delta area. Objectives relevant to the project are: -Protection and valorization of natural/cultural heritage, environment and landscape in the park area; -Management and safeguarding of wetlands; -Protection and valorization of water, forest and habitats; -Management of agriculture, fishery and hunting activities. All these topics identify ecosystem services as a resource. Moreover, Territorial Plan is related to the Po Delta Park Strategic Plan, that is aimed at conservation and valorization of biodiversity through different measures, such as: -Supporting agriculture, tourism and aquaculture operators; -Raising awareness of interested parties about delta's natural and cultural capital value. The reason for improvement of this policy instrument is that it has measures related to ecosystem services, but lacks financial operative tools and competences among local actors. With the project we want to develop mechanisms of Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) and promote shared solutions and Public Private Partnership (PPP). PPP and PES can integrate Po Delta Park Territorial Plan measures and increase its effects on local development and ecosystem services restoration. The ecosystem services valorization is particularly strategic for Po Delta Park that obtained the Man And Biosphere “MAB” UNESCO acknowledgement in 2015. Which partners are working on this? Po Delta Park ART-ER Joint Stock Consortium Company (until 30/04/2019 ERVET- Emilia-Romagna Valorizzazione Economica del Territorio) ERDF Regional Operational Program Valencia 2014-2020 This Operational Programme (OP) addresses thematic Objective 6: Preserving and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency. Priority Investment 6c: Conservation, protection and development of natural and cultural heritage. Specific Objective 6.3.2: Protection, development and promotion of natural areas, in particular of touristic interest. This OP aims at accomplishing the Territorial Strategy of the Valencia Region for 2030 (ETCV 2030), in particular by: - Promoting efficient use of resources; - Green infrastructures; - Valorization of landscape; - Connecting landscapes with relevant nature areas to facilitate the attraction of visitors; - Recovery of the natural and landscape heritage linked to historic, livestock and green-ways; - Developing healthy leisure and touristic activities that have an economic repercussion in the development of the region. The policy instrument needs to be improved because Valencia region has very high valuable natural resources with around 45% of its territory declared as “protected area” according to the environmental regulation at regional, national and EU levels. Its “green infrastructure” (all areas and elements with natural, cultural and visual value), constitutes a big asset for the attractiveness and efficiency of the territory, which makes it necessary to preserve and improve it to guarantee economic growth and quality of life. Which partners are working on this? Council of Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Services and Shipping of the Valencia Region Regional Planning Guidelines (RPGs). (To be replaced by the Regional Spatial & Economic Strategy (RSES) ) Prior to the establishment of the three new Regional Assemblies on January 1st, 2015, the eight previous Regional Authorities produced individual Regional Planning Guidelines (RPGs), which remained in force until 2017. The implementation of RPGs plays an important role in the national economic recovery. Due to changes to Irish Regional structure, RPGs will be reviewed and will be replaced by Regional Spatial & Economic Strategy (RSES) for each region. The "objective of RSES shall be to support implementation of National Spatial Strategy and economic policies and objectives of the Government by providing a long-term strategic planning and economic framework for the development of the region for which the strategies are prepared which shall be consistent with National Spatial Strategy and economic policies or objectives of the Government” (Section 23 of the Planning and Development Act 2000). Due to impending preparation of RSES, this is an opportune time to incorporate new policy areas such as ecosystem services in deltas. The concept of ecosystem services is not currently mainstreamed into Irish spatial policy. However its inclusion in RSES for Southern Region will, for the 1st time, ensure that there is a policy framework for ecosystem services at regional level. Legally all plans at Local Authorities level must be consistent with RSES, therefore this will ensure that ecosystem services are also incorporated into Local Authority policy documents i.e. Development Plans.
