ADRIGREEN - Green and Intermodal solutions for Adriatic airports and ports

Green and Intermodal Solutions for Adriatic airports and ports is a cross-border cooperation project co-financed under the Interreg V-A Italy-Croatia Transnational Cooperation Program 2014-2020. With the aim of improving the integration of Croatian and Italian ports and airports with other modes of transport in order to increase the flow of passengers arriving to major tourist destinations on the Adriatic coast and to reduce the environmental impact of regional maritime and air systems.

The project will last 25 months (from 1 January 2019 to 31 January 2021), has a total budget of 2,104,217.00 Euros and joins some of the leading Croatian and Italian ports and airports, which are motivated to cooperate and create more ecological and the greener ports and airports.

One of the most significant problems of the Adriatic coast is the disparity in the development of infrastructure and modes of transport, which is caused by a lack of investment and insufficient innovation. There are many maritime cities in Italy and Croatia, which have to deal with a large number of passengers, especially during high seasons. Despite the fact that road transport still largely prevails, the number of passengers arriving by ferry and aircraft on the Adriatic coast increases year by year. However, most of the Adriatic ports and airports are not sufficiently integrated with other modes of transport, thus causing serious traffic jams during the summer months.

The aim of the ADRIGREEN project is to find an innovative framework for supporting Croatian and Italian ports in order to improve their linkage to other modes of transport and to reduce their impact on the environment.
