About the project

A-A Agora will demonstrate how innovation, ecosystem-based management and nature-based solutions can contribute to sustainable transition in three coastal areas:

  • The Arctic Archipelago, Norway
  • County Cork, Ireland
  • Centro Region, Portugal

Based on the experiences from the three demo areas, a blueprint for protecting and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity will be created, which can be used by other coastal areas in the Arctic-Atlantic region. The EU wants these lighthouse projects to be defined by the coastal communities to the greatest extent possible and therefore encourage a high degree of local involvement in the project activities.
