South East Gran Canaria Intermunicipal Community
The South East County of Gran Canaria comprises the municipalities of Agüimes, Ingenio and Santa Lucía de Tirajana. 40 years ago, the area was known as the "triangle of poverty". Over the past decade, an increasing population and booming tourism have put pressure on the region's water resources. To respond to these challenge, the county's local government has developed a sustainable development plan, aiming at self-sufficiency in terms of water, energy and agriculture.
