The Province of Pescara is located in the Abruzzo Region and includes 46 Municipalities located in a diversified landscape, from the mountains to the coastal area. The territory is also home to a National Park (Parco Nazionale della Majella) and numerous natural reserves. The fishing and commercial harbour, as well as the Marina in the Adriatic city of Pescara, provides the Province with adequate infrastructures, well positioned in the context of the Adriatic-Ionian Macro-Region Strategy.
The Province of Pescara will take part in all the activities foreseen by the work-plan: analysis, capitalization and disseminations activities. Particularly, the Province will put at Project's disposal the "Strategic Plan for a multimodal mobility in the Adriatic Area" that has been realized within the ADRIMOB Project - Sustainable Mobility coast in the Adriatic area (IPA CBC).
Missions of this Strategic plan are: to strongly encourage and favour the use of sea transport for passengers, both between and along the coasts, and to strengthen and integrate the existing infrastructure networks and structure and promote new / complementing links between ports and inland areas.
Vision of this Strategic plan is to aim at designing a strategy for the implementation of the sustainable multimodal mobility for passengers, whose "backbone" is represented by the presence of the Adriatic Sea and the related maritime connections.
The Province of Pescara, because of its institutional role, is able to involve the local community, the partners and the stakeholders for the completion and commissioning of the sustainable, multimodal and cross-border mobility network, to strengthen the existing infrastructure networks and activate appropriate links with the hinterland.
