ADEGUA, an organisation specialising in innovation at local level
Under the legal status of non-profit association of public interest, as declared by the government of Spain, ADEGUA promotes sustainable economic development through innovation within its geographical area (province of Cordoba, Spain).
ADEGUA applies in its work the Community-led Local Development methodology, based on the one established by the LEADER approach of the European Union. This methodology allows ADEGUA’s governing bodies to decide directly on the use and application in the territory of the public funds it manages. Most of the representatives in these bodies belong to civil society.
All sectors are represented in ADEGUA ( institutional, political, social, economic… ) through local governments, political parties, civic associations, cooperatives, business associations, banks, local companies and individual citizens.
