Being Beira Interior a rural region by excellence, where agriculture is the main vector of the economical activity, it acquired along the years some problems inherent to the developed activities that aroused the environmental conscience of some farmers and technicians of the region in the sense of creating an association that would aim the intransigent defence of the environment, at the same time that would give an effective support to the intervenients of the productive sector, in the sense of obtaining high quality food, associated to techniques in which the exploitation of the natural resources was promoted. Appizêzere was thus created from the will of some farmers and technicians to carry out the practice of Integrated Protection; having a national scope, it was in the districts of Castelo Branco, Santarém and Portalegre that it always focused its activity.
