The 19 municipalities of the province of L’Aquila and Teramo that participated in the RDP Abruzzo 2014-2022, Measure 4 “Investments in tangible fixed assets – Submeasure 4.3: Investments in infrastructures for the development, modernization and adaptation of agriculture and forestry – Intervention 4.3.2: Support for investments concerning infrastructures in the agricultural and forestry sector ”.

“We have financed 100 percent of the applications – explains Imprudente -, we are very satisfied with the success of the tender, we must not forget that the 2016-2017 earthquake and the exceptional snowfalls of January 2017 further compromised the rural and forest roads with very serious consequences on the accessibility of production sites, mainly in the mountains. And the poor quality of the road network constitutes a limitation to agro-forestry-pastoral activities, which often represent primary sources of income in rural and mountain areas of the regional territory “.
