Project's Main Objective: The project concerns the enhancement and improvement of the attractiveness of areas of natural and cultural interest through the protection and promotion of important "water elements" on the E4 path in Crete and Cyprus. E4 has special environmental, cultural, and historical value for the two islands.
- improving the attractiveness and increasing the visibility of the areas where the interventions take place. These areas are disadvantaged in terms of economic development and are more prone to climate change;
- promoting these areas as cultural and geological tourist destinations throughout the year, thus extending the tourist season.
