Interreg VA Call: Environment – Marine Habitats & Species

The new INTERREG Programme for 2014–2020 is one of 60 programmes across the European Union designed to promote greater levels of cross–border co–operation. Northern Ireland, the Border Region of Ireland and Western Scotland share a number of common features with other border areas across Europe where developmental problems are exacerbated by the existence of borders.

INTERREG VA Programme Area – Northern Ireland, Ireland & Scotland

Borders can distort infrastructure and communication networks resulting in reduced economic development and different policy approaches which hinder joined–up service delivery. The new INTERREG Programme has been designed to address many of these issues in order to promote greater economic, social and territorial cohesion across the region. The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) contribution to the Programme is €240m.

Specific environmental/sustainable development priorities within INTERREG VA include:

  • To (i) promote cross–border co–operation in the recovery of selected protected habitats and priority species and (ii) develop cross–border co–operation capacity for the monitoring and management of marine protected areas and species
  • To improve (i) water quality in shared transitional waters and (ii) freshwater quality in cross–border river basins
  • To promote cross–border intermodal and sustainable mobility in the cross–border region
