Creating [ecological] connectivity for generations to come   The book "Alpine Nature 2030 - Creating [ecological] connectivity for generations to come" is published by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and  Nuclear Safety (BMUB).    The Federal Ministry for the Environment considers the creation of an ecological network in Europe to be crucial for achieving a global network of protected areas as envisaged in the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). In this context, the spatial connectivity of protected areas and transboundary protected areas plays an important role in the implementation of the Alpine Convention. Article 12 of the Nature Protection and Landscape Conservation Protocol of the Alpine Convention envisages the creation of an ecological network. The publication has been published in partnership with ALPARC, the University of Veterinary Medicine of Vienna and Blue! .   This publication is available as e-paper .

The Alpine-Carpathian partnership: Looking back on 13 years of cooperation between protected areas
This brochure presents the long-term cooperation between protected areas in the Alps and the Carpathians that has officially existed since 2002, the International Year of Mountains. Following a political initiative, ALPARC has guided the creation of the Carpathian Network of Protected Areas (CNPA), for which its own organisation served as a model. Also, many joint activities and exchange meetings have been organised during the last 13 years. In this publication an overview and evaluation of this partnership are given.   > download the brochure
