Communicating ecological connectivity to stakeholders made easy

Jun 29, 2010
What significance do water management, tourism and agriculture have for ecological networks? Can measures in the transport sector have a positive effect for ecological corridors? How shall I design my garden to be a habitat for domestic plants and animals? These questions are answered by a series of eleven fact sheets provided by the Ecological Continuum Initiative.

The fact sheets help communicating the ecological connectivity topic in a tailored way to selected stakeholder groups, supporting the implementation of ecological connectivity measures in the Alpine region and beyond. The series has been completed now: the fact sheets on nature protection, agriculture, traffic, forestry, water management, spatial planning, citizens and landowners, hunting, communities and tourism are available in German, French and Italian language on Printed versions will be made available to the ECONNECT pilot regions in July.
The fact sheets do not only inform. Their main objective is to move to action. They target stakeholders from the most important fields of work who are implementing ecological networks. Each fact sheet explains the importance of its respective sector for ecological connectivity and lists concrete connectivity measures that stakeholders are encouraged to implement. Furthermore, each fact sheet presents a good-practice example from the Alps showing that connectivity measures really work. These successful examples should encourage stakeholders to imitate them.
