Description

Araripina and Santo Tirso are looking at nature-based solutions for flood control, particularly in terms of river fronts. 

The pairing is additionally establishing an action plan to revitalise urban areas (including the creation of new leisure areas), while simultaneously developing an education-focused communication plan that will mobilise local communities to preserve green urban areas.
