The audience of the Regional Government of Piura (GORE Piura) was the setting for the presentation of the "Risk Without Borders" project. The project is an initiative between Ecuador and Peru aimed at mitigating the effects of climate change with the support of the European Union.

In this context, Elena Mejía, researcher of the INNOVACT project greeted on behalf of Silke Haarich (INNOVACT Project Leader), states that this new initiative complements the efforts that are made in the cross-border territories of Peru, Colombia and Ecuador. Both INNOVACT and Risk Without Borders" aim to optimize the use of resources and avoid duplicating efforts in the area of border integration and thus meet the efficiency and sustainability guidelines of the European Union.
