The funds allocated by the Region
The regional council, on the proposal of the vice president of the Liguria Region with responsibility for Agriculture and Livestock Alexander Piana, gave the green light to the transfer of over 258 thousand euros to the Antola Regional Natural Park. These are funds that will be used for activities to strengthen the investigative functions of the PSR (Rural Development Programme) and for interventions to combat African swine fever (ASF).
The words of councilor Piana
“The measure reconfirms the Antola Regional Natural Park as the implementing body and provider of services regarding the management of the PSR – explains the vice president of the Liguria Region Alessandro Piana -, a necessary step to strengthen the preliminary investigation activities of payment applications and to considerably reduce the risk of definancing".
Control and eradication
“Furthermore, the Antola Park, an institution of the extended regional sector, has been appointed since 2022 with resolutions of the Council, to collaborate with the Region in the implementation of Psa management, control and eradication interventions. Thus, at the same time, we are strengthening both the regional administrative machine and the management actions to combat PSA" (source: Liguria Region).
