EURE partner Eixo Atlántico supported the creation of the first MercoSur Cooperation Cabinet.

Inaugurated on 3 February, the Cooperation Cabinet, between Brazil and Uruguay, has been initiated in the framework of the Fronteira da Paz Sustentável project. The aim is to increase urban development between two border municipalities, Santana do Livramento (Brazil) and Rivera (Uruguay)  and their surrounding cities. For over three years, the project will develop an innovative cooperation experience in the areas of Sustainability, Social Policy and Urban Planning.

This ambitious project is supported by the European Union, Eixo Atlántico, together with the Prefeitura de Santana do Livramento (Brazil) and the Municipality of Rivera (Uruguay).
