5th meeting of the Ecological Network Platform

Jun 29, 2010
The 5th official meeting of the Ecological Network Platform of the Alpine Convention was held in Dobbiaco/Toblach (I) on 21 April 2010. The main topic at the meeting was progress made to date in nominating a number of pioneering Alpine regions as Pilot Regions of the Alpine Convention. It is hoped that the first regions will receive official recognition at the next Alpine Conference to be held in March 2011.
Another major item on the agenda in Dobbiaco/Toblach was the definition of indicators for evaluating progress made in the implementation of an Alps-wide Ecological Network. Under Italian chairmanship, the members of the Platform will now start to develop and analyse a suitable number of relevant indicators.
The next meeting of the Platform will be held in combination with a meeting with the Carpathian countries in Mikulov (CZ) on 20 - 23 September 2010. The event is being organised in the framework of the 2008 Memorandum of Cooperation between the Alpine Convention, the Carpathian Convention and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The programme will include an excursion along the Alpine-Carpathian corridor, a workshop, and presentations of networking in the Alps and the Carpathians with supporting excursions.
