River Tinto Restoration Project

LIPOR, had an application approved under the Environmental Fund: Adapt the Territory to Climate Change, Make P-3AC material.

For this purpose, the candidate project "Approximation and Valorization of Rio Tinto” focused on the river rehabilitation of the Rio Tinto section located in the vicinity of LIPOR's Adventure Park and Ecological Trail, covering a total area of approximately 80 965 m2.

The intervention will consider hydraulic, ecological, landscape and cultural objectives, to increase the resilience of currently existing structures, as well as to promote local biodiversity and associated ecosystem services.

There is now unequivocal scientific evidence that the climate is changing. The Reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reaffirm this evidence and explicitly identify anthropogenic GHG emissions as the determining factor for global warming since 1750. The cause of "global warming" is, therefore, human and finds it is associated with GHG emissions from activities that dictate the direction of progress and economic and social development, from the industrial era to the current era of globalization.
With this project, LIPOR's objective is to adapt infrastructures, reducing their vulnerability to the predictable effects of climate change. This project aims to create responses to climate risks and opportunities through initiatives from which effective adaptation can be developed.
Broadly speaking, the project is structured around three main objectives:

  • Build adaptive capacity
  • Increased resilience
  • Sector awareness and involvement

As such, a set of actions are planned and being implemented that make spaces less vulnerable, more resilient and adapted to the phenomena of climate change, such as:

  • contribute to retaining and slowing the flow of water;
  • improve all adapted and indigenous vegetation cover;
  • encourage the creation of micro-habitats;
  • reinforce an ecological corridor;
  • promote biodiversity;
  • increase ecosystem services.

Despite the constraints resulting from the current pandemic crisis, the results will be presented by the end of 2020.
