ITI for the Mar Menor

An Integrated Territorial Investment (ITI) is a territorial development tool that enables the implementation of a territorial strategy with the aim of providing a response to the specific needs or challenges of this territory. It is, therefore, a management tool, defined in Regulation (EU) Nº 1303/2013, which permits a territorial approach in the development and implementation of public policies. Thus, within the framework of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF), the resources that support a specific ITI may be drawn from:

  • More than one priority axis within a programme
  • Several programmes financed by the same fund, or
  • Several programmes financed by various funds

Integrated Territorial Investment (ITI) for the Mar Menor serves to enhance visibility and make it possible to trace the contribution of European Structural and Investment Funds (ESI Funds) to the “Strategy of Integrated Coastal Zone Management of the Socio-Economic System of the Mar Menor and its surroundings”. Said contribution can be seen in the ITI for the Mar Menor through a range of activities financed by FEDER, as part of the Operational Programme for the Region of Murcia and the multi-regional Sustainable Development Operational Programme, by FEADER, as part of the Rural Development Programme of Murcia (RDP), and the FEMP, as part of the multi-regional Operational Programme
