The organization of the geographical space in a territorial unit such as the inter-county borderland requires a systemic approach, with the highlight of the natural and anthropogenic conditionings, the trends and directions of energy, matter and interests flows. The emphasis of aspects that govern the phenomenology of these border spaces cannot be achieved unless the complexity of the natural, economic and social processes that define the major lines of activities and its own landscape is accepted from the very beginning. Based on these realities of the inter-county contact areas, the project has set three overall goals, temporarily divided into three phases, namely: 1. Analysis of the Current Situation (1997); 2. Identification and Analysis of Dysfunctions (1998); 3. Functional Optimization Programmes (1999).
