Dossiers Troff document (with manpage macros) Ecological networks in the Alpine region
In nature and species conservation a paradigm shift has started in the last few years: static nature protection in isolated protected areas is not sufficient for conserving biodiversity, but approaches are needed that take the dynamic of nature and land use change into account. This change of attitudes contributed to the establishment of the model of a functioning ecological network in the Alps, which can contribute to conserve the extraordinary rich Alpine diversity. The background report provides summary information on key instruments such as conventions, legislation, regulations and programmes relating to ecological networks at national and global level. Particular attention has been paid to information from the Alpine region. The Report also explains why ecological networks are important and how they work. Examples of international, alpine-wide, national and regional projects illustrate what different stakeholders are doing to improve the network situation. Further information on the subject in various languages can be found on www.alpine-ecological-network.org under the headings: News, Events, Information services - Publications and Links

Landscape Development Concept for Ifen-Gottesacker-Schwarzwassertal
The Region of Ifen-Schwarzwassertal-Gottesacker is a karst landscape of outstanding beauty in the region of the Alps; it is characterised by a wide variety of uses in such areas as tourism, alpine economic activities, forestry and hunting. Existing conflicts with regard to these various exploitations require sustainable solutions. As part of DYNALP, a Interreg IIIB project of the network of municipalities, the objectives outlined under the present project are agreements that represent a non-binding guideline for the landscape's development, its management and use. Incentives are to be created to support the agreements. For the project's implementation all users and interest group representatives are to be brought together to draw up, in a single process, all the objectives and guidelines for future uses and to find solutions to the conflicts. The participants are to be assisted and advised by outside specialists, with experts from the local authorities to hand to provide the technical basis.

Natural and Cultural Heritage of Württemberg's Allgäu
A cadastral register is to be set up as part of the DYNALP project – an Interreg IIIB project of the network of municipalities – to record the elements that make up the natural and cultural landscape. The cadastral register will be entered in a digital information system and cross-linked with other surveys. With the results from the preparation of the cards, the knowledge of the high value of our diverse landscape should be reinforced. This enhancement is to promote regional identity and a sense of attachment to one's native land and also contribute towards developing sustainable tourism (e.g. by creating so-called "theme trails").

Development of a sustainable model for rural tourism
An alpine and hilly territory that, in the course of time, has experienced a slow and continuous decline in human activities (agriculture, livestock farming). At the same time, a little known territory (even by locals) yet which has a wealth of biodiversities, landscapes and historic-cultural resources where the possibilities of tourism have not been exploited. This DYNALP project builds on the idea that it is possible to expand the offer of tourism which will show consideration for the local environment and culture, but also able to kindle new and diversified production processes.

Enhancement of manufacturing and activities related to using and working stone
The use of stone in buildings, dry walls and paved tracks are important signs of human influence on the Caneva territory. On the other hand, decades of mining have damaged whole areas, comprising the possibility of developing tourism and excursions to the area. An ecological-territorial study will make it possible to ascertain the indispensable elements for the knowledge of the territory from activities and manufacture related to the use of the stone, and also, through territorial itineraries and teaching offers, to restore the essential elements of the landscape and the possibility to develop new ways to use the territory.
