New meeting with the councils of Nerja (Malaga) and Almuñécar (Granada) to drive benefits of the Natura 2000 Network

Life Conhabit Andalusia, the project for the conservation of habitats on the Andalusian coast coordinated by the Environment and Town and Country Planning Department, held today a new meeting with representatives from the councils of Nerja (Malaga) and Almuñécar (Granada), to try to drive sustainable initiatives in the Natura 2000 Network space Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo which are spread over both cities.

The objective of the meeting, held in the Detunda-Cueva de Nerja Botanic Garden in Nerja (Malaga), was to plan initiatives that promote the potentialities of the aforementioned space, not only those relating to knowing and valuing the ecosystem services that they bring and the maintenance of its magnificent biodiversity, but also other that end up more profitable for both cities as an economic wake up call and for creation of employment.

With everything, sustainable tourism or ecotourism green employment or promoting the products of the Natura 2000 Network spaces have been some of the ideas put on the table to bring about the transformation of this natural space into an important economic potential for both towns.

On the other hand, this round of meetings responds to the second phase of meetings that Life Conhabit started with representatives from councils of towns with Natura 2000 Network spaces, with the aim of gaining their participation and involvement not only in the conservation of these natural spots but also in the dissemination of its enormous environmental richness.

Therefore, representatives from the project wanted to thank the councils for their interest in collaborating and participating in these types of initiatives.
