 Description

The Local Action Group GAL Costa dei Trabocchi is a partnership established in November 2016 made of public bodies, trade associations and private subjects that represent the economic and social fabric of the territory for a total of 48 members.

The LAG - in implementation of Measure 19 "Support for Local Development LEADER" of the Rural Development Plan 2014-2020 of the Abruzzo Region - is entitled to manage funds for territorial development in order to create employment and improve the general living conditions in the municipalities of the Costa dei Trabocchi. A large and qualified alliance representing the main economic and administrative forces in the area has developed a unified strategy on the basis of which the Local Action Plan was drawn up. The Local Action Plan contains actions for the establishment and consolidation of local supply chains by promoting the enhancement of the cultural and gastronomic heritage of the territory and the development of responsible and sustainable tourism. It promotes the protection of the environment and the improvement of the quality of life, social inclusion and the development of services in marginal areas. It contributes to the strengthening of the competitiveness of the territory and of the sectors linked to its identity through an action of connection with other initiatives present in the area. It also undertakes to develop a communication strategy with the aim of expanding the reputation of the Costa dei Trabocchi inside and outside national borders. The Local Action Plan is based on some assumptions supported both by the characteristics of the territory and by the trends of the international market: - The competitiveness of a territory and of the sectors linked to territorial identity strongly depend on an adequate territorial narration - Tourism can enable a presence of local products (markedly agri-food and artisanal products that enjoy a typicality factor) on the global market.
