economic and social development plan (esdp)

The ESDP is a document containing the development strategy to be followed by the Autonomous Region of Madeira, even defining the Region’s status quo, its weaknesses and opportunities. The document had two versions, taking into account two different time periods, 2000-2006 and 2007-2013. These two versions mentioned the Community funds that the Autonomous Region of Madeira would be entitled to in these time periods, since they constituted the main financing instruments for the achievement of the set objectives.
