Pilot Case - Castilla-La Mancha, Spain
Castilla–La Mancha is an interesting case study to be investigated for spatial mobility and its relationship to Twin Transition, as it constitutes a peripheral/distant area of the multicentric metropolitan region of Madrid. Castilla–La Mancha, have considerably increased their work-related intermunicipal flows during the last three decades. These regions keep changing from predominantly rural areas into areas that exhibit mixed rural–metropolitan behaviors, they are increasingly influenced by metropolitan overflows, which are predominantly integrating non-centrality municipalities and they experience a commuting reconfiguration towards multidirectional patterns.
Objectives of the Pilot
The close interaction between rural and urban population dynamics and characteristics is essential for further identifying the factors affecting spatial mobility during Twin Transition. MOBI-TWIN will further identify the changes brought by the Twin Transition to this region, indicating a specific focus on the interactions rising between the rural character of Castilla–La Mancha and the urban influences it receives from the large metropolitan area of Madrid.
