From 13 – 15 October 2014, the conference “How Policy can enable Biodiversity” will highlight opportunities for supporting biodiversity at the international and the local level. The conference, which will be held in Chambéry/F, will also present the findings of the greenAlps project.

Various sectors, such as land-use planning or agriculture, must be involved in order to ensure biodiversity in the Alps. In many regions, the results of projects and studies are often not known or not directly applicable. How can the framework for sustainable, effective European environmental policies be improved? And how can the new EU funding programmes contribute to maintaining biodiversity? These and other topics will be discussed at the international final conference of the greenAlps project, to which you are cordially invited.

The topics will be addressed by speakers from different perspectives, from European to local level, and discussed within the framework of workshops and field trips. The conference will take place from 13 to 15 October 2014 in Chambéry, France. Contributions will be translated into German, French, Italian and Slovenian. Participation is free of charge. The greenAlps project is co-funded by the EU in the context of the Alpine Space Programme in order to put into effect the results of current and completed projects in the area of biodiversity.
