Office against Rural Depopulation Dipalme

The Provincial Council is tackling the demographic challenge in the province with the support of the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge.

The Provincial Council of Almeria has presented this morning one of the most important projects undertaken by the Provincial Council of Almeria: the launch, in collaboration with the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge, of the ‘Office against Rural Depopulation Dipalme’.

In the framework of the Conference for the creation of a Network of Collaborators, the vice-president, Fernando Giménez, has made official the launch of this office that “is a reinforcement of the policies that we carry out from the Diputación to stop depopulation” and that have placed the Institution as a pioneer at national level in the matter.

“Almeria is one of the provinces with the highest population growth, but it is growing unevenly. The province, thanks to the efforts of the Provincial Council and initiatives of municipalities has managed to turn this phenomenon around: we have examples such as fibre, guarantee water, the promotion of companies of ‘Sabores Almería’ or in the case of Enix that this year has opened a school and a multi-adventure park,” he explained, highlighting the value of the new step that this office represents.

“It is a pioneering project aimed at rural areas that aims to reinforce the policies and actions that are being carried out in terms of depopulation from a “local and provincial” perspective. We want to be the meeting point between all the agents that act in the territory from the different administrative levels”, explained Fernando Giménez.

This pilot project will be reinforced with a solid and broad base of collaboration agreements with different public-private agents with which we intend to combine synergies that will benefit the development of policies to fix the population in the territory.

The agreements have been signed with 11 entities: Chamber of Commerce of Almeria, Tecnova Foundation, Andalusian Entrepreneurship Centres (CADE), Guadalinfo Centres, University of Almeria, Rural Development Groups, Business Confederation of the province of Almeria (ASEMPAL), Association of Women Entrepreneurs of the Province of Almeria (ALMUR) and Partenalia Association.

The services offered by the office are grouped into four lines of work:

Promotion of cooperation between agents of interest. In other words, we want to be a strategic node to coordinate and efficiently manage resources against depopulation.
Enhancing the value of rural areas in the province.
Design and execution of driving force projects for the rural population: to adopt an active role in the fight against depopulation and in the territorial transformation through the design and execution of actions and driving force projects that add value and revalue rural areas.
Information and support service for rural development: to constitute an effective channel of communication in the rural areas of Almeria through assistance, dissemination, awareness-raising and two-way communication with the public.
