The Polis Program - Urban Requalification and Environmental Enhancement of Cities Program was a program that allowed the intervention and requalification of riverside and sea areas, with the intention of creating a recovery strategy and creating action frameworks in Portuguese territory. This program program pointed and developed actions that valued the local qualities and that still solve the problems of the community and the urban areas, in order to improve the quality of the public space and the riverside areas. As an example we point out the cases of parque expo, coimbra Polis, Aveiro Polis, Polis program in Lagos, among other paradigmatic examples.


In another paralel and recent program, it is pointed out that "future generations also deserve to see the dunes" is one of several media titles that expresses the uncertainty given the dissemination of the Coastal Coast Program to be implemented in the north of Portugal. This program, which is considered controversial due to its radical and widespread form of action, proposes the retreat of populations in their areas of residence, resulting in a loss of human relations with the territory. This happens in “Praia” and “Facho”, fishing districts located in Vila Chã, Vila do Conde, where fishing traditions such as the typical “houses of the sea” are at risk.
Due to the increase in sea water level (predicted by the reports of the International Panel on Climate Change, NASA, etc.) as well as the aggravated coastal erosion identified by the Portuguese Environment Agency, it is essential to protect the natural and built heritage and communities.
