What is POCTEFA DUSAL?
The POCTEFA DUSAL is an Operational Program for Territorial Cooperation between Spain - France - Andorra (POCTEFA) created within the framework of the European Union's regional policy. It is 65% financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The objective of this cross-border programme is to strengthen cooperation and economic and social integration between the 3 countries of the Pyrenees.
The POCTEFA DUSAL project unites Pyrénées2vallées and Sobrarbe. The goal is to create a Unique Destination Sobrarbe Aure Louron (DUSAL) bringing together the 2 French valleys and the Sobrarbe region. This unique destination will make it possible to implement a common strategy based on the protection of the natural and cultural heritage by working together. Promoting sustainable development and sharing technical knowledge between universities and companies will be the project's priorities. The tourist offices of the 3 countries will align themselves under the same colours and the same brand, in order to communicate with one voice in print and on the web. POCTEFA DUSAL is managed from the city of Ainsa, which has 15 French and Spanish partners from the public and private sectors, including the tourist office Pyrénées2vallées.
