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 .

Énergies renouvelables dans les parcs alpins- Conflits d’utilisation, actions nécessaires et solutions envisageables
Le projet « Énergies renouvelables dans les parcs alpins » a été réalisé par les Académies suisses des sciences et cofinancé par l’Office fédéral de l’environnement (OFEV). Le terme de « parc » a été choisi comme terme général utilisable dans tous les pays alpins et se réfère à des espaces possédant un label lié à la protection de la nature et des paysages ou au développement durable (parcs nationaux, réserves de biosphère, sites naturels classés au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO, parcs naturels régionaux). En Autriche, en Allemagne, en Italie et en France, le terme d’« espaces protégés » est souvent utilisé comme équivalent. Sur la base d’un total de 21 parcs interrogés dans les pays de l’espace alpin, le présent rapport montre les conflits entre protection et utilisation en matière de production d’énergies renouvelables, et propose des solutions possibles. Parmi les parcs participants en Suisse, en Autriche, en Allemagne, en Italie et en France, on compte 13 parcs naturels régionaux, 3 réserves de biosphère, 4 parcs nationaux et un site naturel classé au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO.
