Alpine Ecology: Results of the international project greenAlps

Biodiversity is a foundation for human wellbeing. However, strategies for its protection are not implemented effectively and projects often do not have the desired effect. The partners of the international project greenAlps recommend that in order to protect biodiversity decision makers develop and implement an integrated, cross-sectoral landscape vision for the Alps, with concrete targets and implementation steps.

The project greenAlps ran from September 2013 to November 2014. It was co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Alpine Space Programme. It has been implemented by eight partners from six Alpine countries. The results are now available in a series of publications aimed at different target groups, including political decision makers, contributors to other projects, and programme authorities. All project publications are available at the project website.
