+ Atlântico project provides for a multi-sectoral, decentralized intervention and the implementation of action strategies that value participation and co-responsibility, as well as favour the development of local initiatives (individual or collective) and their self-sustainability and enable mobilization and individual training, community and institutional for a social change in the targeted territories.
The objective of Local Social Development Contracts is to promote the social inclusion of population groups that reveal greater fragility of social levels in a given territory, mobilizing for this purpose the integrated action of different agents and locally available resources, constituting itself as an instrument of combat to social exclusion strongly marked by a proximity intervention carried out in partnership, in order to:
a) Increase the levels of social cohesion in the municipalities that are the object of intervention, through the dynamization of their socio-territorial situation
b) Focus intervention on population groups that in each territory show the most significant weaknesses, promoting change in the situation of people taking into account their vulnerability factors
c) Enhance the pooling of efforts between the public and private sectors in the promotion and execution of projects through the mobilization of local actors with different origins
d) Strengthen the link between the interventions to be developed and the different existing planning instruments with a municipal dimension
