Le parc Régional Naturel Pfyn-Finges, Suisse

Le parc naturel Pfyn-Finges situé dans le Valais Suisse réuni une grande variété de paysages, des glaciers aux vignobles ou aux zones humides et des caractéristiques culturelles à la frontière linguistique avec les allemands et les français. La forêt de Pfyn, une des plus grandes forêts homogènes de pins dans les Alpes avec de précieux paysages de prairies, se trouve au cœur du parc naturel.


L’espace protégé de 17km2 se situe dans une région péri-urbaine de 12 communautés et dont 280km2 est peuplé par environ 30 000 personnes. Il connecte des agglomérations et des villages ruraux alpins ainsi que le centre touristique Alpin de Leukerbad. Les objectifs les plus importants du développement régional sont l’utilisation de haute qualité des ressources locales, valeurs et traditions et leur préservation. Les observations participatives des visiteurs, la création d’un réseau de différents acteurs, le développement d’une offre touristique soutenable ainsi qu'une chaîne de valeurs locales font partie de cette stratégie. Le parc naturel représente le lien entre les acteurs régionaux, la population et les deux régions du Haut et du Bas- Valais.

Nature park Tiroler Lech, Austria

Nature park Tiroler Lech, Austria

The Nature park Tiroler Lech in the northwest of Tirol exists since 2006 and is centered around the landscape of the river Lech, one of the last free-flowing rivers of the Alps. The perimeter of the protected area also includes the mixed mountain forests around the valley. There is a rich biodiversity with rare species of plant and animal life to be found with presences of Junipers, natter jack toads, dwarf bulrushes or sandpipers.


24 communities form the nature park region Tiroler Lech with an area of around 860 km2 of which 40km2 represent the nature park itself and with a population of 22.000. Contrary to conventional ski tourism this region aims at developing a sustainable tourism. Based on its extraordinary natural qualities a model region for sustainable economy and nature-based tourism of high quality should be created with the funding of regional economic programs. The popular hiking trail Lechweg connects as the lighthouse project at the center of this strategy different territories and actors. Over the last years alternative trails, a cycleway and a range of regional products have been developed to increase the touristic offer. By increasing the summer tourism, a valorisation of the agricultural and the gastronomic sector could be achieved.

Regional Nature park Baronnies provençales, France

Regional Nature park Baronnies provençales, France

The area of the Nature park Baronnies Provençales in the southern French Prealps touches the two regions Rhône-Alpes and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. At the cross-section of Mediterranean and Alpine climatic and cultural influences a unique natural and cultural landscape has been formed in the Baronnies mountain range. Apart from the rich biodiversity of the territory the landscape formed by traditional forms of agriculture (e.g. olives, lavender) and the historic buildings and centres characterise the nature park.

86 rural communities, dominated by agriculture, adhere to an area of 1500 km2 and 31.000 inhabitants. The most important objectives included in the park’s charter are the valorisation of natural and cultural assets, the development of an economy which is based on identity and a well-balanced spatial development. Preservation of historic buildings and cultural landscapes, valorisation of regional products, nature protection and sustainable tourism are current fields of regional development. Projects linking consumers and producers for the creation of regional value chains and to support local farmers are a priority in this agricultural region.
